In her own words: "Painting the female 'object' is a particular challenge for a female painter. I approach it competitively and personally. The female object is beauty in form, line and mass.
My works are meant to be simple eye-candy - no political statement, no soapbox.
But I want to project aspects  that go beyond simple stereotypes.
I hope not only bring something fresh to the art world, but allow the viewer to apply their own connection and interpretation".
