"My artwork reflects my inner journey and the resistance to letting go; control versus release. I use several different media and surface design techniques such as textiles, encaustics, airbrushing, screenprinting, monoprinting and painting to create words and/or images that express my personal experiences. By sharing my artwork and teaching classes in the creative process, it is my vision to empower others through art."
