Artist Statement:

Patterned tablecloths, curtains, slipcovers, bedspreads ­ the effluvia of domestic life ­ are the canvases on which I paint archetypal mid-century women contending with their surroundings.

I mine old cookbooks and magazines for images of people, food, and appliances, finding in the idealizations of the past clues to the preoccupations of the present. I leave the prints of the underlying fabrics partially revealed as peoplešs clothing or objects, and use shadows and reflections to merge the figures physically, visually, and metaphorically with their environments.
