January 28, 2023 – March 19, 2023
I use sculpture, printmaking, and photography to create images inspired by motifs of my heritage and feminine awareness.

Bright colors, shiny surfaces, texture and dimensional forms extend or layer in accumulation to create forms suggestive of play, analysis and at time discomfort.
