ARTIST STATEMENT

My latest paintings are about structural stability — internal and external — and how it relates to home.

Having a safe and secure home, physically and emotionally, impacts us all as children, and we carry the impact, for good or ill throughout our lives. My newest paintings in Dream House explore the home environment in relation to family, marriage, and the reality/fantasy that can accompany these issues.

My materials are discarded woman’s clothing, jewelry, buttons, as well as household finds: wallpaper, newspaper, asphalt shingles.
