In Her Place

With a background in traditional drawing and printmaking I thought that the computer art that I produced (for my own pleasure and sanity) while working in commercial art for thirty years did not qualify as “art” – until 1999 when I saw Barbara Kruger’s powerful work. I stopped trashing my pieces (both literally and figuratively) and began to enter juried shows. My greatest satisfaction lies in getting the message out (eg. Why specify sex when gender is irrelevant?!).
