Making art requires uninterrupted time, thought, and solitude that have always been difficult for women to find in the midst of competing demands of job, family and community. For more than thirty years I have made art while working at another job and raising a family. My artistic focus is expressionist portraiture. I look under the surface to what is unique about each of us and our relationships to one another and the world we occupy. I often wonder if I can justify my focus in these times of global conflict and environmental crisis. Then I look at art in history and remember that there has always been a place for paintings that reflect what we strive to be and to love.
