"In my life as a child, wife, mother and artist, the issues related to relationships and connections to others have defined the parameters of my journey. Bonds that link or separate us, desire, privilege, tribulation and solace have all played a critical role. I am focusing on the desires of my own ego versus the needs of all others in the relationships that define my past and present. My work conveys the discoveries and connections that define my passage as an artist and a mother."
