My work documents my everyday experiences as a woman, wife, mother, artist, West Coast dweller. It is simultaneously specific and general, personal and universal, mundane and important, as I find the human experience to be. My pieces are part journal, part memoir, part narrative, as they record my memories and my story as it unfolds.
I take snapshots during my daily activities and create paintings or drawings based on my collected images; this process gives me the privilege of time with typically fleeting experiences, allowing me to remember, consider, and share moments from my life.
