My work as a mixed media artist includes acrylic, oil, encaustic , and photography using collage methods on canvas and/ or wood. The use of mixed media gives me great freedom of expression in a variety of themes, in both abstract and realistic styles. Themes that interest me most are spirituality, female self-image , and socio-educational issues. My unconventional spiritual beliefs, experiences of self-mage issues, and 18 years of work with children in the inner city impact my art work. These three main areas are explored separately and sometimes in relation to each other.
