Artist Statement
As an expressive and very political artist, the past two years have had a profound effect on my work. I began integrating my response to the political climate into my paintings early in 2016. I was optimistic yet distressed by the tone of our national dialogue -- my work reflected both hope and fear.  After the shock of the election, my work took an unexpected turn. Instead of expressing my profound sadness and anxiety, I found that I need to retreat to a meditative state. The studio was my much needed zone of calm in a world that had changed overnight. Since inauguration day, my work has vacillated between the the art of protest, expressing unfiltered rage, and, in times when I need solace, to more geometric or minimalist work. I feel grateful that in these times I have a means for both expression and escape.
