My visual art influences are rooted in the Western Modernist tradition of painting, originating with Cezanne and Van Gogh. My collage art and small sculptures have been influenced by the collaborations and exchanges I've had with the (late) poet Steve Dalanchinsky and other NYC and international artists who contribute to the annual contemporary DADA art journal: Maintenant.
My work has been exhibited at the feminist AIR gallery in NY, SAW Gallery in Ottawa, the Daniel Spectrum Gallery and Project Gallery in Toronto, Folie Culture in Quebec City, tAd gallery in Texas and the Asia Culture Center in Gwangju, South Korea.
It is my hope that my paintings, collage, sculptures and drawings speak to audiences who are interested in the continuing tradition of expression, romance and colour of art based in emotional expression. It is a movement that belongs to all who want to surround ourselves in the surreal awakening that challenges what we think is real and what is feeling.
