My mixed media paintings are visual narratives on the fragility of human connections. Themes of uncertainty encourage the viewer to consider the vast and unknowing potentials of our futures.  Prior to having heart surgery in 2022, I created a series about transformation.  Renewal of health and spirit is demonstrated with butterflies that surround the figurative self-portraits.  Resilience is a theme that reverberates throughout my work and life.

Adding distressed texture illustrates disquieting subject matter symbolic of physical and emotional pain. Black and white letters cut from magazines imply conversations.

Elements of race, gender and relationships are portrayed as fragmented and sometimes disparate with recognizable eyes staring back at the viewer.   The current social climate where we are acutely aware of, and often tormented by others, begs us to consider the vast and unknowable potentials of our futures.  

Incorporating found objects and collected ephemera adds personal context of women's shared experiences.  Artworks with couples represent a time in my life when I questioned my standing in a relationship and the power play of give and take.

I studied art at the State University of New Paltz, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education.  Raised in Hartsdale, New York, I llive in Richmond, Virginia.
