Artist's Statement

I call my work “iconic imagery”, allegorical narratives which originate from my rural beginnings in the South where I learned from the women in my family to tell “stories” by creating art. The pieces I form are the interpretive study of woman as a symbolic image. They evoke nature, religious images and cultural references which have a strong feminine point of view.

I have always been drawn to the use of female metaphorical images, such as the Madonna, angel, warrior, etc.. In all of my work I continue to explore the image of women and how they are perceived by society as portrayed in myth and legend.
