ARTIST STATEMENT

I create two & three dimensional art of the prehistoric female symbol, inspired by Marija Gimbutas's research. My art combines archaeology, religion, history, social issues and contemporary art. My content is about the effects of these symbols on the transformation of life into art and art into life, revealing a relationship of time, history and memory. The female form is symbolic of an everlasting archetypal presence. My Goddess-like images of paintings and sculptures are repeated onto a copper textured surface, as if they were excavated from the earth. My passion took me to Italy and the islands of Malta, where hundreds of artifacts have been found depicting women. I curated and organized group exhibitions and lectures that resulted in a bi-coastal conversation between two countries. I consider my art to be a dialogue, a spiritual expression in which the physical and psychological properties celebrate the female and a passionate effort to discover the essence of her being and life.
