My materials and content come from mass consumerism and how I view its effects on culture. Long journeys seated as a passenger engage my view from behind salt crusted windshields, consuming images from the side roads and cross country interstates. I make note of favorite snack foods and backyard treasures. These hum drum experiences, marked by a photo or a collected object, become memories of a daily life lived as a mother and an artist.
