In this year of change, making art and sharing my observations help to create a calm center and illustrate quiet acts of strength as a response to the chaotic world around. I am inspired by nature, folk art, color, and shiny things. Oftentimes, work evolves from complex doodles, and each  12” paper quilt square piece is assembled like a multilayered puzzle from paper, foil, fabric, found materials and pen drawings. Every square has a story, and I invite you to look through the gallery “Artworks” menu item and visit my blog “LA Art Notes” menu item to join me on this evolving journey.

Composing the Future

Bankhead Theater Gallery
Show Statement

The Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art member exhibition challenged our artists to flex their artistic powers in response to the extreme events of the past year to propel forward our hopes, dreams, and ideas.

As artists, we are witnesses and raw material for envisioning possible futures. The artworks engage on many levels – wonder, worry, hopefulness, and activism, in an inspired array of visual media. Responses range from intellectual to contemplative. Many works consider how the events of 2020-21 confront history or provoke change. Just as many reveal inspiration in isolation and blooms in the chaos. Artists have found beauty in the shadows, have reassessed priorities, adjusted their joy threshold, and reset expectations. NCWCA is pleased to dedicate its member exhibition to this visionary theme.
