I Meant to Tell You | 2013

Thirty individual pieces, one for each day of a month, create this larger work on longing. Words that could have been said or should have been said are expressed within the blue linear elements contained in the imperfect pour of the yellow....the color of hope. Made with glue, string, tape (adhesives chosen for their symbolic purpose to hold things together) on clay coated panels, the pieces are made to resemble a blank piece of legal paper, which serves as a potential place to rest in the face of all things uncontrollable.

What We Said Is Between Us | 2013

The works in this series deal with dialogue within an intimate relationship, unspoken verbally but stated or insinuated nevertheless....i.e.: actions that cause one to need to read between the lines. The works are 30 x 40 inches to reflect the largeness of space that is created when verbal contracts between romantic partners are broken or lost.

Flawed History | 2000-2010

Flawed History is a series of mixed media works that took over ten years to fully realize. Made with only glue, string, tape on clay coated panels, the pieces are made to resemble legal notebook paper. The concept was to create an easily recognizable image--a blank piece of paper, which serves as a symbol for what could be: a journal entry, a love letter, a to-do list, a draft for a novel, etc. We create our own future, which becomes our history, through experiences which are colored by perceptions based on our individual upbringing. Each mark we make speaks volumes of the lives we choose to lead and the lives we then affect. By allowing the unique "imperfections" to form and exist in each piece during the process of making, I especially drew attention to the question of what are "flaws"---as our own marks and abrasions serve to document our routes and give meaning to our person and existence.
