      My artwork keeps me sanely insane. To say that my work has feminine qualities might be an understatement. Im questioning the limits this places on me as an artist, but it is one of the strongest identities that I am certain of being, that is, a woman. Slowly I am learning what kind of a woman I am and want to be. My works are the crumbs littering the path leading you, the viewer, on my own personal journey through life. The growth and connection is something interesting for me to realize and witness, and hopefully you will too, otherwise it remains a selfish endeavor.

      For reasons I am still searching for, I have an overwhelming desire to work directly hands on with my materials. Not even gloves can separate me from my art, and though I have no definite answer as to why, I feel this is very important. So I continue, leaving my fingerprints and hand impressions everywhere and all over my work.
