Currently she is developing a body of work inspired by a trip to Greenland the aim of which is to honor the majestic bodies of icebergs predicted to disappear by 2030 due to earth warming.

I move from a moment in nature to the back-story of cities dying and being reborn, to faces/people in the middle of their personal stories. In all instances, if it touches me I need to catch it and express it.

And as for my choice of medium, I select each one for how it moves across a surface and becomes lush in its own way, almost as if dancing to different modes of music.
