Artist Statement

I have created artwork for over thirty years that explores mothering from a social, cultural, and emotional point-of-view. I use my family (and myself) as typical representatives of quotidian, middle-class, American family life. I draw on my experiences to create art that puts this into a social, cultural, and emotional context. In my early artwork, the act of mothering is overt, as I try to instill my values in my sons. As they grow older, that becomes harder as they engage in typical challenging behavior. The artwork reflects changing family dynamics. Through gentle humor and without didacticism, I examine inconsistencies, faults, and problematic behavior as reflected in family life.
