“Flora and Fauna” Solo Show Sep 16-22

“Flora and Fauna” Solo Show Sep 16-22

September 15, 2016

In exploring the many varieties of ‘flora’ and ‘fauna’, I drew inspiration from 17th Century Dutch flower painting’s sumptuous beauty. The symbolism of flowers may speak of constancy, unrequited love, and the ephemeral nature of beauty itself. I continue to expand the role of animals in my works by looking back into the menagerie in Jean-Baptiste Oudry’s paintings. I believe companion animals reflect the inner desires, jealousies, kindnesses and hurts of their human guardians.

“Hers is an art quite literally full of life.”

 

Los Angeles Times

“These jewel-like paintings intuitively fuse different aesthetic traditions, folk art and old master, with natural grace and an uncanny quality that may be a species of magic.”

“… embraces her forebears not just intellectually but with her heart as well. Honest art is art worth paying attention to.”
