“In my work I explore the image of women and how they are perceived by society as portrayed in myth and legend. The pieces I form are the interpretive study of woman as a symbolic image. They are allegorical narratives which originate from my rural beginnings in the South where I learned from the women in my family to use objects found in the home and in nature to create art. They evoke nature, religious images and cultural references which have a strong feminine point of view.”
