Statement

I often dream in bright vivid colors, and I think in poetry like fragments. I have a long-time yoga practice, and as part of it I meditate. As I do I sometimes get a vivid image of a completed artwork before I create it. At other times, I have a linguistic idea first, and as I make a piece or a series of works, I meditate on that.

While painting, I typically combine yogic inspired imagery or feminist ideas with brightly colored geometric and/or gestural abstraction. I use text elements on my canvases, typically painting them in white as a nod to Helene Cixous. In her famous "Le rire de la méduse" ("The Laugh of the Medusa"), she encourages women to use white ink to write themselves into history.
