I have been considering the intersections between the small cellular world mixing with the fast-paced-wiz of life, the brief quiet blink of time I get to make my work and the desire to slow it down. Considering the whirl of planets, the pull of a six-year-old’s hand and the small mediation of drawn dots. The mixed up spaces between home and classroom and studio and brain. Where the chaos and imperfections of life attempt to find an order. I am a studio artist...and a mother, a wife and a teacher and have been teaching art at the high school level for 20 years.
