I have worked in traditional gallery settings, as well as outdoors- creating public installation arts. In addition, I have instructed design and drawing courses at Joliet Junior and Kankakee Community Colleges, and have been a member of the National Women's Caucus for Art- who have published my works in several exhibition catalogues.
I am inspired by the natural world, and my work is a reflection of the curious need for the strange and quiet simplicity which that world still holds. The media implemented often varies, and can range from traditional and alternative oil on canvas paintings to sculptures created from branches, discarded wood, and sculpted epoxy clays, among other things.
Creating my visual work involves an exploration of how I can implement these materials to express at my best, a mysterious, yet elegant form that compliments nature. Subtle applications of color, abstraction, and textures are all considered. Through this, coupled with my innate human curiosity, the work allows me to reintroduce the link to the natural world that often dissipates as our human lives progress and become ever so complex. I intend for my visual creations to counter the current onslaught of hurried visuals, increasingly limited attention spans, and ugliness that our society tends to create and focus on.
Sometimes, I feel we all need to get back down to Earth-even if only for a moment.
