Mixed Media

My work explores themes of fertility, motherhood, and the human experience through figurative, mixed media paintings in watercolor, gouache, acrylic and oil. I often integrate the traditionally feminine craft of embroidery to challenge the boundaries of feminism, but I am always interested in altering the painted surface with the unconventional. In more recent work, the environment has become as relevant as the figure in my narrative, and I am exploring the symbol of the rainbow as an archetype.
