It was laying there for months, in pieces. I used some epoxy to get it back together but the other side didn't quite match up. There was a beauty to it though. The bisque ceramic texture has been growing on me. It has an innocence to it, potential, almost a virginity....

I 've been focusing on improving my craft which is directly tied to patience. I'm impatient by nature. I want to see a piece done. Once I have it sorted out, I begin to lose interest. This creates much unfinished work and skills almost mastered. Jane of all trades, mas...

While all this painting has been going on, my sculpture mind has been fermenting. I mull over things. I sit. I wait. I'm following several threads of thought in my sculpture and sometimes after some mulling I abandon them before I get too deep into it, literally someti...

I notice every painting starts with fear for me. My inner critic is pretty harsh when it comes to painting. I envision her looking like Otto Dix’s portrait of journalist Sylvia von Harden blowing cigarette smoke at me as she tells me my work is shit. Strangely, I don’t...

Apparently you aren't supposed to pursue too many different mediums, it makes you look unfocused. Unless you are a "great artist" preferably male and then you can break all the rules. I don't care. I can only sculpt so much and then I need to take a break. I can only p...

 I thought I was going to wrap up this series soon but it nags at me. I read yet another article and feel compelled to make...just...one...more. The latest are the always classic, "Grab 'em by the pussy" panty, a "She's in such good physical shape" bra, "As long a...

The pieces "Disgusting" and "Such a Nasty Woman' are part of the Trump's Misogyny series. I find the statements Trump has made deeply disturbing and felt compelled to make work that addressed it. Inspired by artists such as Mimi Smith, and Zoe Buckman, I've been explor...

Today is a good day. I was mentioned in an article about the Resist show by OBRA Collective that opens Friday at C3 Lab in Southend. I have 2 pieces in the show and one was pictured in the online article.

This is a milestone for me. I have been working hard over th...

Somehow, there's been a whirlwind of activity since Mercury is no longer in retrograde and I couldn't delay any longer. Do I wish I had better photos? Yes? Have I bought everything I need to actually set up and take them? Yes. Have I had an opportunity? No. Because my...
