Artist Statement

My still life work has always been about the juxtaposition of tangible objects with what they represent. Formal elements that brush up against each other creating a visual cue for the stories we hold and the ones we have lost.

Recent Work – Glory

I invite others to slow down with me and take a closer look at the unexpected splendor that surrounds us everyday. I am awed by this ripe and fleshy energy as I study the botanical life for clues on how to translate this glory onto canvas with brush and paint and hope to encourage others to join me in the wonder.

Here are a few examples of her work.
