My artwork draws attention to and elevates the great design of the objects that have filled our lives and live in our memories. I invite others to reflect on their own personal and family histories and to consider that our shared experiences connect us to one another. I gravitate towards subjects related to technology and industrial design, finding as much beauty in meticulously designed and manufactured items as others may find in a landscape or portrait. In everything I create, I consider how my perspective as a woman and a mother informs my visual vocabulary and I seek to challenge expectations of what a female artist’s work should look like and how her career should be structured.
