Artist's Statement

I’m a material girl. I love using a multitude of materials to depict
traditional subjects in a non-traditional way, and using traditional materials,
like oil paint, in a non-traditional way. Using glitter, fabric, grains, gold
and silver leaf, and metallic paints, I re-interpret a new way of looking
at what we are used to seeing. Whether I am interpreting babies, deities,
or dogs, I’m using the subject as an armature on which to hang the
painting.

My work is about transformation. I love working from sacred imagery,
imagery that has been revered for centuries, as well as from primitive
sculpture, and modern day sculpture, such as designer bags! My earliest
influences were Flemish art, where the excitement of the invention of oil
painting is evident in the brilliance of color and range of detail, and African
art, whose totemic qualities always had a powerful effect on me.
