I have conducted a lifelong, conscious inquiry into the nature of being human. My works engage the viewer’s own relationship to the world at the individual, community and global levels.

On the surface, much of my work can be justifiably categorized as feminist; however, the focus on women simply illustrates an excellent case in point wherein commercialism and suppression diminish an entire demographic. At the same time that I’m exposing a culture of objectification, I am also exploring the transcendent power of words and expression to liberate the self.

The juxtaposition of words and images provide visual complexity while creating an ambiguous picture plane. My works unabashedly celebrate the aesthetic reverence for beauty in art, both for the art object and the subjects represented.
