As a small girl, I was surrounded by strong creative women and over the course of my lifetime have parlayed the lessons learned from those women into my own dynamic style--both artistically and personally.
As a single mother, raising four children in sometimes harsh and difficult circumstances, I never lost sight of my artistic vision or creative dreams. My deep love for and concern for the plight of our planet and so many of the unfortunate souls upon it, has led me into a creative expression that leans heavily on re-purposed media. Nothing goes to waste in my creative world. Everything from a simple safety pin to an exquisite sea shell, lovingly gathered from all manner of fascinating locations--a quiet beach, the detritus of every day life, discarded or given away--finds its place in my art. Perhaps, most importantly, those simple repurposed items, create the foundation for the sculptured souls that I capture in artistic form from all corners of the earth. Sculptured souls is the cornerstone of my art. My uplifting view of my own cultural heritage is unflinching and heartfelt--making every piece crafted come to life with pathos and personality, as well as character and, ultimately joy. I strive to be optimistic, realistic, and creatively fearless.
