Over the last 2 years my paintings have been inspired by paper collages I have made. Some of these collages contain cutouts from old children’s books, placing the little girls in dreamlike surroundings. I love the symbolism of the animals in the paintings and the stories the paintings might inspire in the viewer. For many years now painting the crown has been a healing and meditation process for me.
My “creatures” sculptures are 3 dimensional collages. I assemble different parts that play with contrasting materials — ceramic and fiber, smooth and rough, hard and soft. The creatures are little companions that have been inspiring me and have been challenging me to branch out with my artwork. Working on the creatures has brought back some of my early uninhibited creativity.
