 In her words...

  I've been painting for most of my life, and this is what's been coming out of me lately.  My paintings are  often described as 'fragmented narratives'. I draw inspiration from the  bits of word and phrase that  bombard us daily in the form of faded ad murals, snippets  of overheard conversation, the near-illegible  promises of old signage. Stories defined  as  much by the info they lack as by what they present. Using  animals as the main  characters  in my narratives, I'm able to explore gestures, postures and expressions  that  are both  familiar, universal and still sometimes as ambiguous as those partial verbal  messages. For  the last year or so I have been working steadily on a project I've titled  'Untame vs. The  Domesticati': a  series of paintings that examine the themes of  domestication and  wildness through symbols relevant to both wildlife and human                                                                                            society.
