My work is both personal and archetypical and seeks to memorialize a moment in time, the fragile nature of life and the emotional impact of the past on the present. I set out to create portraits and dreamscapes that express the mythic and legendary. Magazines, photographs and found materials factor in and become the
story within the story. My portraits and dreamscapes pinpoint my unsettled view of the world with, I hope, a subtle sense of amusement and innate feminism. I studied with artist Juanita McNeely in the 1970s and I continue to be influenced by Feminist Art Movement as well as Expressionism and the Dada movement. The
collages of Hannah Hoch are a big inspiration.
My next solo show will be launched at Pleaides Gallery in 2020 and is titled “Retrospective: Ex post facto” in it, I will show work produced over the last 3 decades.
