I call my work "iconic imagery", allegorical narratives which originate from my rural beginnings in the South where I learned from the women in my family to tell "stories" with my art. The pieces I form are the interpretive study of references which have a strong feminine point of view.
My palette of mixed media examines the female metaphorical image of the Madonna, angel, warrior, etc. In all my work I continue to explore the depiction of women and how they are perceived by society as portrayed in myth and legend.
