As an artist and an activist, my work represents the
strength and unity inherent in the human spirit.
These paintings are part of several different series
about women, health and the environment. They
celebrate what is possible when people come together as one.
Each painting has a feeling of its own and is done in
different mediums. The colors are vivid and rich
reflecting the myriad of emotions that I bring to my
work. The textured pieces use a multitude of dried herbs, and many other natural objects. I encourage you to bring your own experiences to the viewing of my artwork and freely interpret the imagery according to your own imagination.
