Artist's Statement

The themes of my drawings speak of the ambiguity and absurdity of human existence. I thrive in the intimacy and aloofness of the urban setting in New York City. My work illustrates the encounter between the lingering sensibility of the body and the concrete persistency of lived experience. Hence, contemplation of tangible familiarity is a subsuming part of my creative process.

She has formal studio instruction in sculpture: Iron pouring and fabrication, wood, and marble - all of which inform her focus on charcoal and ink sculptural drawings.
