Woman by Window

I prefer to paint on repurposed surfaces or objects whenever possible.  In considering the connection between the waste of raw materials and all of the ecological implications, and the routine relegation of women past a certain age, both wise and capable, to the margins of society, I seek answers to these fundamental questions in my work: What does it mean to honor the discarded, to elevate it from refuse to an object of beauty and value? How better to re-enchant the world than to participate in the healing of the living things that inhabit it?
