Antler Girl 2015 SOLD OUT
Antler Girl is a high resolution scan of one of my original hand made, cut and paste, assemblages.
Started as a line drawing on vellum, which I placed over a print of my painting 'I Am Here' Antler Girl began to take shape as I added found elements from my work desk as well as imagery from an old map. With the painting beneath hauntingly visible through the transparency of the vellum, I incorporated a piece of etched Plexiglas from a previous work as another layer to create a harmonic visual interpretation of an imaginary mythological tale.

Sometime I will use images that are not my own. Not to claim them as mine more to connect with a collective unconscious. Old Anatomy books are a source of inspiration. They are distant, somehow removed from the actual subject they are meant to represent. I recycle stamps from my father's collection and often re-use his written Scientific research reports or just as likely pages torn from an 1800s Tennyson book of poetry given to me by a grade school friend, stollen from her parents bookshelf . So now you know. Lost and found

"My fascination is with what is just under the surface, obscured from full view. I like to work in away that is receptive to the subconscious mind. When I can let go of control and be without my own narration this is when the magic happens and the painting paints itself"
