I’ve always been a deeply creative and intuitive individual. I never considered a career in which I didn’t exercise my creativity, until I became a teenage parent, and decided to choose what I thought was a more practical career path; nursing. I earned my BSN, and found my niche in obstetric nursing. After having 2 more children and managing a natural birthing center, I decided to go back to grad school to earn my MA in Integrated Health. This is where my passion for art was reignited, and I embarked on a masters thesis project which involved making 10, multimedia sculptures out of plastic, maternity mannequins. I named the exhibit “MAMA”, and it explores my feelings about womanhood, motherhood, and the inherent, creative potential of humankind. Since the whirlwind that was MAMA, I’ve continued to produce multimedia sculpture works, exploring ideas about feminism, religion, man’s relationship to nature, and evolution.
