Artist Statement

As an artist, I have been fortunate to create meaningful work in various media. For me, if my work doesn’t have a solid foundation and contributes to the world, it has no meaning. I have explored socio/political issues, primarily overcrowding and overpopulation.

As I progress in my life, looking deeper becomes more meaningful. How I have evolved as a being is measurable in my connection to the earth, its beings, the decisions I make, my relationships and the roads I travel.

My work centers on balance, harmony and the integration of contradiction/contrast and the opposition of themes, color and form.

Color intrigues me.   Brash/vibrant/bold. Quiet/moody/detached.  Atmospheric and energetic; color is the vehicle in which our innermost experiences are brought to the surface and experienced.

The division of shapes and spaces fascinates me. As human beings, we divide the spaces in which we live, work and play. My abstract compositions play with the division of space and how spaces and shapes relate to each other.

I work in the abstract by choice; it challenges me, and invites the viewer to evoke their own personal experiences and emotions.

 Working in  textiles is part of my soul, my being, my spirit. It’s tactile, soft, warm, and oh so invitingly sensual.

I have produced three major series of work in textiles,  and each stands on its own thematically. I integrate my  love of vibrant, saturated colors and contrast between each body of work.  With the addition of the work in the “2020” series, it’s now four.

TWO YEARS” series

2020 and 2021 have been two of the most disruptive years in the lives of many throughout the world. I began to explore the impact of quarantine, lockdowns, political and social unrest resulting in protests and extreme polarization of populations and the effect on not only me, but everyone I know.  This series is in response to the unknown, the lack of tangible timelines and uncertainty in our lives. Days blended into days, oftentimes lost in weeks and the unknown.

The series, “Compartments,” refers specifically to residential land usage  throughout the world. The concept began with my reaction to photographs of areas of poverty in Africa, where people lived in dumps converted into villages. The dumps were  colorful due to the preponderance of printed materials strewn on the ground. A great number of Americans live in abject poverty that is typically swept out of our line of sight. Low-income housing projects and apartments with residents too numerous for their intended size cluster in our inner cities where they remain unnoticed by most Americans. The families who live in such communities often survive on government assistance programs and have never known the luxury of living in a single family dwelling that properly accommodates their size. Their living spaces are congested and small residential complexes built closely together in multi-story buildings.

Conversely, we witness the effects of urban sprawl into single-family residential homes that eventually become abandoned buildings throughout our country. Politicians tout that all Americans have the right to own a home in the suburbs. Mortgage loans were awarded indiscriminately to masses of our population who could not possibly afford to repay those loans, leading to mass evacuations from suburban areas back into the cities from which they originally fled. Their American dream vanished.

More deeply is the issue of overpopulation in the world.  Statistics state that that world population will reach 8 billion between 2025and 2040.  On October 31, 2011, according to demographers, the earth’s human population crossed the 7 billion mark. It took only 12 years for the global population to increase from 6 billion in1999—and only 12 years before that to increase from 5 billion. Our planet simply cannot sustain growth at these levels.

The common denominator in each piece is the birds-eye view of the dwelling that illustrates the constraints of the inhabitants residing in their own “compartments.”

Identity” series

“Identity” is my first textile series since “Compartments” in 2014.  I took a sabbatical from textiles and explored both oil painting and encaustic sculpture during 2015; and underwent a major life change that year as well.

I moved from a very lonely lifestyle and rural residence into a more populated area, and have since become a city dweller which suits me perfectly.  I have always loved cities..the energy, the dynamic and culture, along with the diversity, are so exciting.

Color Impressions” series

This series is an exploration of low value colors in a singular composition; how they react and respond to each other in a geometric composition.
