ARTIST STATEMENT

I work in a variety of mediums; acrylic, oil, pastels, aquarelle, oil sticks, varnishes, glazes,

finishing and surface techniques. I am exploring basic issues of opacity, color, form,

depth, obfuscation and revelation in life, language and in art - I cannot help but be in-

flounced by philosophy, poetry, literature, psychological symbolism, fairy tales, music,

myths, conceits, and metaphors, especially of strong feminist models-women`s conflicting

roles in a changing time throughout the centuries.

I am using background in design, 2 and 3 dimensional techniques and aesthetes. My

background is integrated with my writing, psychology, my early childhood and life

experiences evolving as a women and mother combining international study to explore

these issues in a organized but abstract way. I tend to reinvent the same themes, work

from a structure and then proceed by distressing, demolishing, recreating and saving.

My major themes are inner restorations and survivals, challenging always reality vs.

myth.
