A fine arts fiber exhibit exploring aspects of self-portraiture. In this exhibit the artist was asked to look beyond the mere physical and instead present an inner view. The art work may reflect how the artist sees themselves at this time, or at a formative moment in their life. Each piece reveals something unique to the individual and at the same time, that which is universal to all.

My piece is called Becoming Me is included in this exhibit.This artwork is a part of the “Peel Away The Layers” series that I started when I was approaching my 50th birthday.  I realized that I was peeling away the layers to become the woman that I am today.  Underneath the layers is a slightly wonky, colorful woman.

  1. I very much appreciate your art which exhibits structure but always has a visual surprise. The way you interpret life in your art is thought provoking in the best sense and consistently touches the spirit. If you're "slightly wonky" as you say, then I think there should be more slightly wonky people on the planet.
