My young daughter stands on the precipice of her future, wondering specifically how or if she will be able to protect her unborn daughter from people who seem intent on suborning the rights of women. I don’t depict her with a saint’s halo; rather, by using this halo I mean to connote the sanctity of every person, deserving of sovereignty over their own bodies.
I express my love for the world by drawing and painting what I see around me. My hope is to paint sincerely and with gratitude, and to engender a response to nonverbal truth that will take the viewer beyond the confines of his or her everyday existence. At the end of the day, so to speak, the primary circumstance that draws me to work in paint is the versatility and potential of the medium itself and the ever-changing nature of the challenges it presents.
