My chosen mission is to tell — over and over — the often untold stories about women via abstract portraits. Abstracts have the ability to be truer than non-fiction in that they gather traits, thoughts, and experiences into an attractive, challenging, and meaningful composite. Mine offer an offbeat quality through stark expressionistic imaging. They celebrate key existential moments, questions, and insights while being intentional about bearing specific witness to women’s experiences. At the same time, my artwork memorializes women’s uniqueness within the human fabric.
