Incidentally and anxiously, I discover and draw from the meanderings of the female image in our culture, as it addresses me. I treat the cultural, commercial and personal as one in my work, through a process of collecting, collaging and manipulating images into my paintings. Elements coexist in the paintings to describe the anxiety associated with inhabiting a medial self consciousness.
In my current work I'm exploring the balancing act of being both an artist and a mother, expressing intense emotional feelings over the motherhood experience. As we are never prepared for the ever changing mandates of tending to young children, my theme is constantly changing as the demands of motherhood change.
I like to share my pictures of myself struggling in the daily mundane routines of being a mother and find relief in painting what I am feeling at the time. I am hoping that other women will see my art, feel a connection and that will create peace of mind as they see themselves in me.
