My drawings and sculptures are a narrative of my life and events that have to define my fears and hopes. They revolve around my life's adversities which made me question my purpose and relevance as an artist, woman, and mother.
Life's adversities are recorded as they are processed and throughout the years, I will find myself back at these works adding to them as the lessons evolve.
The muses drawings consist of many of the musicians that inspire my work and help create the narrative in my work.
I hope you browse through this web site and allow me to share my stories of adversity, dreams and a hopeful ending.
