Artist Statement

I create a variety of work for the both the public and private realm. I employ numerous skills to complete the works including painting, light carpentry, glass mosaic, and glass laminate and reverse painting on glass. I have been a glass artist for 15 years and a muralist for 10 years, working mainly for the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.

The subject matter differs from my public art to my private work. My murals are heavily geometric and architectural. The motifs are chosen from community workshops. The designs are site-specific and community driven. My private work is typically interior wall-hung pieces of reverse glass. These figurative compositions usually look at the female condition through sexual identity, intellectual rights, privacy and power vs. submission. I include men in my paintings, but they are always in the supporting role, the woman is the focus of the story I’m trying to tell.

Milkboy Coffee hours are Monday – Saturday, 7 am – 6 pm (10/11 pm the night of a show), and Sundays, 8 am – 5 pm.
