Artist Statement

My work expresses the power and struggle of femininity to balance the demands of modern life with motherhood. Is it even realistic to excel at the responsibilities of motherhood and be successful in business at the same time? The maternal connection suffers and time management at times becomes nearly impossible. A conflict of interest arises creating pressures on all roles. I explore and examine the issues of motherhood and maternity. In my paintings, the mother is always an invisible entity that lives outside the canvas, but my sculptures reveal an idealized, perfect, untroubled mother-to-be. My goal is to render the potent forces that unify and separate mother and child.
