"I am a contemporary painter who specializes in conflict resolution. I create archetypes that reflect difficult issues that face us today and create a mythology that tells their stories to help us overcome our own personal conflicts, also redefined by me as "nepantlas", a 16th Aztec word that means, "in the middle of it".
My newest show, "Crush! What's Love Got to Do With It?" is an art exhibit that investigates the conflict of modern love from the lens of an over 40 and frisky single woman using online dating apps. During my investigation dating , it was challenging to keep our conversations optimistic . We enjoyed our times together, but we were "crushed" from the disappointments of life and I was "crushed" that I never heard from them again. I continue to date as I refuse to give up. Love means something to me still, eventhough I have suffered from it.
Why does love have to be so difficult? And so I created two archetypes, one named "Gone", representing an older woman in menopause, and "The Unbroken" an older man, who has been abused, in which their contemporary mythology is one of tragedy and hope. "

"The cartoon is an elegant, minimalistic drawing of the realistic figure, and the realistic figure is just an over-rendered cartoon. "
