I'm inspired by nature, patterns, and kids. I crave bold color and quiet to create. The "C" Series, as I call it, is a visual documentation of various points in my cancer journey (probably speaks similarly to many patients), as when you are trying to put on a good face, but you are terrified inside, ("The Queen of Everything's Rosy"); or when you finally accept your baldness and realize it is not so bad ("Bald is Beautiful"), or in the fog that chemotherapy can bring on ("Chemobrain"), or when you complete treatment and realize your new lease on lilfe ("I Will Blossom Again!"). I began painting in acrylic and adding paper collage elements: the interiors of security envelopes and prescription inserts with their disclaimers and side effects. My small way of turning lemons into lemonade and recycling the barrage of paper that presents itself daily!
When not working in acrylic, I work in fabric collage, watercolor, pen & ink, fabric and embroidery!
