The ability to decide one’s own future is a freedom not to be taken for granted. Throughout history women have pushed back against the demands of a restricted life imposed upon them while living in a patriarchal society.
By collecting objects, both the familiar and the unusual, and assembling them together, I am asking the viewer to look, to truly look, and hopefully, to see.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Having been born in Canada, growing up in the Midwest, and landing in Georgia as a teenager, left me feeling as an outsider. Armed with the powerful resource of observation, I watched and witnessed the human spectacle, taking visual notes and collecting, always collecting along the way.
Over the past eleven years I have created 13 solo exhibitions. The most recent of these is DARK COTTON REVISITED. This body of work examines and sheds light on the lives impacted by our racially biased world.
I have had work travel to Washington D.C., Chicago and Syracuse, New York for group exhibitions. My work was included in the publication, NOT NORMAL/ART IN THE AGE OF TRUMP, curated by Karen Gutfreund Art.
Working from my home studio in Athens, Georgia, I continue to create.
