statement

I make conceptual abstract paintings and installations. My ideas are often inspired by my loves of historical abstraction, color, geometry, by my yoga-meditation practice, and by feminist ideals...“Beauty will no longer be forbidden.” (Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa)

While I have long been enamored by the oeuvres of ab-ex/neo-expressionist Phillip Guston, abstract impressionist Joan Mitchell, proto-pop painter Cy Twombly, and op artist Briget Riley, my art more directly links the works of first abstractionist Hilma af Klint, abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, and pop artists Robert Indiana and Yayoi Kusama.

I write and draw on the matrix in pencil and paint, typically mixing gestural and geometric abstractions...sometimes on the same painting, and other times on separate surfaces within the same series or installation. My recent bodies of work have the color pink as a focal point, which in yoga speak is called the drishti. According to symbolists, pink is the color of unconditional love, understanding, passion, good health and success.
