My mixed media paintings portray declarations of love, intimacy and uncertainty that exist in relationships.
The complexity of women’s vulnerability, exploitation and questions of self-worth are represented in the works created in 2019. The nude figures depict feeling defenseless as well as desired and loved.
As a collector of ephemera, found objects with personal context find a place in my paintings. Images I photographed in Italy of doors, windows and locks reflect the complex open and closed emotions in relationships. The art I create reflects my journey.
The collages of Romare Bearden and Deborah Roberts are a source of inspiration to me.
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 lived in NYC for 20 years prior to raising my family in Richmond, Virginia.
