My 'Lace Painting' series weaves iconography and symbolism into intricate lace patterns. For the past few years, I have been using sacred hearts, skulls, and animal imagery in my still life paintings to symbolize the fragility and frivolity of life, like the Dutch masters vanitas paintings. My interest is in representing the fleeting nature of life with symbolic objects of the inevitability of death.

My lace paintings are intrinsically female, the satisfaction that comes along with making meaningful work with one’s hands, is akin to making lace or crocheting. The lace look to the paintings is related to my natural style of drawing and doodling, allowing me to work quickly and effortlessly, reflecting on my feminine nature.
