I try to portray the daily rhythms of women across the world as they work in markets and rice fields and as they take part in local festivals. I am particularly drawn to the special grace of these women as they attend to the rhythms and rituals of daily life. My paintings explore the movement, color and light of their lives through pattern and texture. I continue to be moved by the grace and strength of these women as they go about the work of their daily lives.
In the in between, I paint objects of everyday life. My senses are captured by the play of light, shadow and reflection in these casual arrangements of fruit on glass or flowers in a glass vase. What began as a technical exploration of the intersections of shadows and reflections, and light and dark, has led to a love of these interactions of color and light and the desire to explore them further.
