The empowerment of women is a recurrent theme in my art. These works are inspired by the belief that the future of humanity ultimately rests upon restoring the balance of female power. My sculptures envision a future in which women embrace their inherent strengths and deep connection with nature. The change the world so desperately needs requires women to embrace female power and identity.
With the suppression of women over millennia, lost is the moderating force that tempers the temptation of war, acknowledges our place within nature, and protects the future of our children, and ultimately, our species. As feminine influence fades, the world spirals out of control to a point where we are not sure what awaits the next generation. My art explores the ubiquitous abuses used to dominate women and imagines a future in which courageous heroines once again serve as creator and guardian of life.
Over the years, I have developed a technique using mixed media assemblage to create seamless, porcelain-like sculptures. The process to create each piece can take months and hundreds of individual pieces, either hand sculpted or altered found objects. Most works includes a variety of media, including porcelain, wood, metal, clay, ceramic, resin, and plastic parts that are embellished, altered, and used in unique ways.
