"My artistic inspiration comes from my experiences as a woman and a strong connection to nature. Using traditional collage techniques, I re-purpose found imagery both old and new, collecting bits of female figures, landscapes, plants, flowers, and other items from nature. Several combinations are tested until a match reveals itself that is visually pleasing and thought-provoking. Each collage tells my personal story while exploring themes of Domesticity and Eco-Feminism. Using the nude to evoke mythological goddesses and ancient fertility figures while addresses notions of ideal beauty espoused in history and the media. This recent series titled "Good Housekeeping" is my response to being home all the time during the Covid-19 pandemic."
