sur/re/al/ist:

an artist or writer who seeks to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind 

In this case, a vivid dreamer who creates artwork based on her actual dreams. To delve into the subconscious is to allow one to really seize the potential of the mind. I never have to worry about my content being unoriginal because it comes from within, from the way my brain twists information into a stimulating visual image. I am fascinated with how neurotransmitters replicate and replace information, how they reroute and create new pathways. I am equally fascinated with the machinations of the human body and how cellular development creates flesh or disease. How amazing is this perishable shell that holds within it such spirit and wit.  My work is about dealing with all aspects of being me, from youth to motherhood, from desire to aversion, from new advances to facing the aging process.  My mind has no limitations, my work is limited only by my meager skills, but I’m not afraid to ask questions or seek answers and that’s what has kept me addicted to the process of making art for nearly half a century.
