In the series, "Runaways," a female protagonist goes on adventures accompanied by various
animal companions. The work conjures a picaresque sprit familiar from adventure stories in which
a heroine navigates an exotic and unfamiliar world.
I am a contemporary representational painter who focuses her work on the human experience with figurative images. The images are of New York City, exploring the interaction of people and their environments.
Obsessed with the human condition I've used the human figure & head for their unlimited expressive potential to explore social issues inspired by myth, history,& current events. In my new work Cosmic themes appear in a more abstract manner.

My painting style is realistic in essence. I paint this way because I love the world as it appears with its infinite shapes, color and substance. My paintings are representations of both esthetic and spiritual experiences.
Constantly, I am collecting and archiving intellectual mental images of the past and now, from
landscapes, folk traditions and classic Indian cinema, etc. I use these vestiges as a platform for
evoking a contemporary dialogue.
I integrate painting, found objects, text, dance and sound to create installations that link my personal history to lesser-known history; I am currently working on a project about maids in the United States as I was a maid as an art student
