I grew up in a suburb of Detroit when the area was booming. I remember my formative years with mixed emotions. I created these highly textured paintings by layering medium on boards; painting and digging into the surface with blades and other sharp tools. Serene, whimsical images on the surface; deep, often random ruts beneath the surface create the tension and reflect ambivalent feelings of the places where I lived as a child and young woman.
