For the past ten years I have drawn as a meditative practice; begun first as I struggled with infertility and then as I experienced new motherhood in my late thirties. With the changing dynamics of being a wife and a stay at home mother, my drawings offered me peace and perspective. Like carapaces built and shed they told stories of small truths. The forms and organisms created in my early drawings explored the variety and lexicon of my experiences.
The drawings in my most current series utilize the symbolic vocabulary I have created to address the issues of nature, justice, women, reproduction and cultural decolonization. The work is intimate as I focus on the microcosm and small details. I am a believer in the importance of small things. Truth and beauty, I try for both and when nature allows I find love too.
