My work is concerned with feminist critique and socio-political issues.  This is a world upside down, but rendered with a sense of humor and optimism.  Throughout my career I have explored these conceits in drawings, paintings and sculptures and in the hybrids created by their overlapping techniques.

Currently I am working on constructions that are mask headdresses, inspired by strong women personalities.  The work is composed of a variety of symbolic images such as flowers, birds, and architectural elements.  They are painted on layers of plexiglass with acrylics and mixed media transfers that incorporate my drawings.  
They celebrate both our history and our future.

This series is a reaction to a previous group of 35 portraits where I painted bondage masks onto photographs of Trump and his cohorts.  The faces are covered with restraining devices similar to the ones used on women to silence them, often called Scold's Bridles.
