Artist Statement
Inspired by glanced over materials like plywood, pallets and latex paint, I add value to mundane industrial objects by using repetitive tasks and attractive design. I build up layers of pastel colored latex paint that appear hidden until the viewer approaches the work, creating an awareness of labor. I sand between layers, collect the talc like product to then create a satisfying accumulation of pigment. Much as my work adds value to mundane overlooked objects, it holds appreciation for historical women that paved the way for today's women artists. I occupy a space that is traditionally male dominated, I use it to pay tribute to the women before me and to empower others.
