Artist's Statement:
My paintings intuitively explore the ancestral and generational relationships of girls and women from the perspectives of body and land, spirit and psyche. They chronicle my personal spiritual journey through the matrilineal line, all the while revealing artifacts, fragments, and portraits along the way. Pursuing an eternal circle of life, death, and life again. The result is a continued dialogue between the corporeal body we inhabit, and the soul that inhabits us.
