Identity and Universality

Through my artwork I am engaged in a process of self-examination.
My current research involves identification and elucidation of
the traces of a trauma response.

Functioning as monumental icons, my paintings are primordial
symbols from a world of myth, and transformation, of alchemy
and power. These icons represent a feminine god. She is fluid,
borderless, representing all eternity. In the divine world of
this goddess, she plays a role that is quintessentially female.
Her story represents both the totality and also the fragment
of the universal that is the personal.

My paintings make contact with a subterranean human network of
memory outside of time. I am seeking to channel the collective
memory which connects all human experience on some level.
These works are my research in pursuit of that revelation.
