Artist Statement:

“My older daughter was delivered after 27 hours of labor and a C-section. The nurses showed her to me, and she came across my view like a pink and orange blimp with bright blue eyes that locked on mine. It was a profound experience meeting her for the first time.”

“I paint emotionally evocative moments in my life from memory.  Some of these memories revolve around raising two daughters who struggle with anxiety and depression, and some relate to being raised by a mother with anxiety and depression.  But other memories show joy, frustration, resentment, grief, and the full gamut of family dynamics.  In other words, by showing my life, I am simply showing emotions and experiences that are common to everyone. “
