The Three Graces

The Three Graces

Artist Statement

When you contemplate my work I hope you feel the passage of time, the past in the present. The desire to express ancient forms and aspects of femininity consumes my work. Primitive art is often considered direct, primal, and pure. The human form in art resonates in us a sense of mystery, calm, and sacredness, and these qualities are the foundation of my art. The intellectual scope of my work is a continual consciousness of the feminine experience, interpreting inner strengths, fruitfulness and beauty.
