MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am interested in what drives us, as human beings, and our consciousness.
I feel an enormously profound connection to my female ancestors and a deep responsibility to them, to live my life and practice my passion with the awareness that, it is their struggle that has allowed me to live and paint with freedom and equality. To paraphrase Maya Angelou from one of her wonderful poems,
“I come as one, but I stand as 10,000,” (The Grandmothers),
resonates very deeply with me. To me, this means not just my ancestors but also the family or lineage of artists to which each of us belongs.
