My work acts as a record of my free associations. As a result, pieces often track a chain of short-range logic from element to element but as wholes read as absurdities or impossibilities. The process of making is an impulsive, mischievous combination of images that takes on personal significance.
i fell in love with this artist's work (way back when) at her mfa show at tyler and it's great to see her work again...see more here.
