My work explores female identity. I am inspired by women, their relationships with others and with their own selves.
These recent paintings depict aerial views of breasts, sometimes distinct and at other times distorted and enigmatic. The ideas for my work spring from conversations with my friends and other women about improprieties against women, the allure of eternal youth, and the obsessive and sometimes inane thoughts that women deal with on a daily basis.
