As a child, I was always fascinated with deep sea creatures — mythic or otherwise —anything huge, with tentacles or with teeth. As an adult, this obsession sneaks into my work. Octopus imagery has found its way into my pieces many times. In some cultures, octopuses are associated with death, and in others with the subconscious. They seem a perfect symbol for secrecy, mystery, and agility. 2008

Product Story

Underbelly original mixed media collage of an octopus.



Original mixed media piece on panel.
My mixed media panels have a very different compositional approach from my paintings. I find myself increasingly looking for intersection in my private and public lives as a mother, a woman, an artist, a writer, a gardener, as a citizen in my local community and at large. I am using my next show to examine overlap. My creative process is inspired by the rhythm, the chaos, and considerations of my life — and by poetry, literature, and especially by the natural world.
