"My work investigates the relationships between the body and the natural world. The history of botany is also the history of human experience, and plants may emerge as sacred foci in mythology, agents in medicine and conveyors of supernatural symbolism. In my work, plants spill from women’s bodies with twisting roots and opened leaves, acting as physical manifestations of inner sensuality. The flourishing floras are intermediaries between time felt and seen, and traverse the divide between the tangible and the psychic. Painted figures coexist with reclaimed glass mosaic, creating a lush and dramatic duality."
