Artist Statement

I paint portraits of mythical women intertwined with the the tendrils of plants and attended by animals. Visual details and decorative motifs suggest a colorful fable of the generative life each woman leads. I use acrylic paint on wood panels. With layers of rich color on a textured board, my work is figurative and borrows from folk art techniques that appeal to naive emotion. Thematically, my paintings expand the notion of heroism to include stories of nurturing, conserving and sustaining the natural world. I look to my work to give expression that is sensually alive to images of ecological sustainability.
