Little Worlds:

Reflecting a lifetime in the arts, I embrace a varied, colorful aesthetic influenced by intricate patterns, stained glass, jigsaw puzzles, nature, dance, theater, and jazz. Flora and fauna drawings and found images inhabit small scale compositions made of foil and paper in intriguing layers of texture and color. Each little world has a narrative addressing personal and environmental ideas. I invite you to look through the Gallery and visit my blog LA Art Notes to find the stories behind the artworks.

These Jeweled Waters, 2023

The call was for works representing the artists’ individual interpretations, responses to, and personal associations with water.

These Jeweled Waters is a 12 inch paper quilt square with foil, tissue paper, found images, plastic strips, mirror shards, and silver glitter paper. It features a nude woman in a sun hat that was originally printed in a 1960s Good Photography journal. Here, she enjoys her solitude on the banks of rushing water.

Conflict is a work I created specifically with the theme of this exhibition in mind, considering the fine line between self love and self hatred. Reversed images of the model sit close but estranged, representing internal conflict.
