Monsters + Aliens

I’ve been working on a new series called Monsters + Aliens. The idea evolved from my previous work of integrating animals and obscuring images of women in my compositions. Weaving strings of materials, mostly from old paintings and some new into made up creatures, sculpted from wire frames come to play. I’m excited and looking forward to working on this new series--- when old work informs the new until it comes to fruition.

I always felt like an outsider growing up. In school, I felt like I never fit in. But it didn’t help when my mother, instead of buying me glue for school projects, would tell me to just use rice.
