In my work, I seek to find new ways to communicate the intangible. Embracing the random encounters of the everyday, from found images, leftover materials and scraps. Especially in this time of isolation, creating with materials I have at home has been essential. This randomness and chance happening allows for unexpected ways for communication and connections​. As I layer these pieces I am responding to the tactile qualities of the materials and how they interact and are in conversation with one another. I am curious about intersections, the combining of media, and the in-between spaces that tell stories and create a common thread. The history of these materials evolve as they are revealed in the compositions. 

 

My role as a mother inspires my artwork, in content and in the space I make for creating. Through my art I strive to channel a message of truth and playfulness. As a mother, educator and artist I weave a thread through these identities to bring hope and connection to the world, even for just a fleeting moment.
