I am a contemporary figurative artist with training in Classical methods of art. I create personal and symbolic images that explore meaning in the 21st Century human experience and seek to evoke the beauty of relational moments between viewer, subject, and artist.
My imagery draws from autobiographical experiences as a women and mother in the American South. My work acknowledges the divine feminine as both a creative force and explores embodiment in subject matter, material, and process.
My style emphasizes commitment to technical rigor and craft, beauty as a worthy artistic pursuit, and contemplative observation as an imaginal tool. My art is most heavily influenced by contemporary artist Patricia Watwood.
