My drawings are quick and playful self-portraits exploring my womanhood, motherhood and self through my body, honoring women and feminist artists before and around me. Some hold mini versions of art in the background that has impacted my work directly or indirectly (names of the artists scripted in the drawing and in title). The raw approach is grounded, challenging the traditional high-art pristine, golden-framed works that, to me, create distance between viewer and artwork. The intimate, playful drawings connect to the viewer as another (sensual) person, doing inner work, not alone.
