From Craighead-Green Gallery:
“Heavy Metal Tender Heart: embracing the idea of living life with grit and grace. We are all called to face challenges. Learning when to lean into strength or softness, or a combination of both, can challenge us and it can soothe us. Along with the internal process of creating, I explore materials. For those who know my work, the paintings in Heart Metal Tender Heart, echo the familiar combination of paint, textiles, metal, hand stitching and nail heads.
Often considered sculptural in nature, my paintings are layered and often complex. The challenge is to unify many elements in a way that creates a single “skin”. The juxtaposition of the harder metal surfaces and the softness of canvas and textiles is very appealing. My desire to create paintings that excite, move or inspire someone is always with me as I work. What people say, see, or feel is so much more meaningful that anything I can express.”
