My artwork reflects my background in scenic painting and restoration through the high relief textured surfaces, and exploration of the interaction between the man-made and natural worlds. I paint semi-abstract scenes from my urban environment and excursions in nature and sometimes explore women's issues and themes of motherhood. I'm also interested in focusing on specific moments in time through painting, or meditations on seemingly mundane, everyday things, that have an often unrecognized beauty and profundity. Painting has always been a therapeutic, meditative experience for me, with a heavy emphasis on the tactile, visceral, material aspects and elements of art-making. I continue to explore new art forms like ceramics and the book arts.
