I call my work “iconic imagery”. It is drawn 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. The pieces I create are the interpretive study of woman as a symbolic image. They evoke nature, religious images and cultural references which have a strong feminine point of view. I have always been drawn to the use of female allegorical images, such as the Madonna, angels, brides, godesses etc. These icons form the basis for my work. The contrasting mediums I use help to convey the intended message. Collaged layers of metal lace with antique costume jewelry, hand carved wood and smooth procelain-like skin combine with welded steel to create my modern woman.
