My work focuses on discovery of the self through the creation of a hero-warrior archetype. Mighty serpent women swing their maces while riding beasts that lead them into the unknown. They traverse strange inner landscapes, wading through thorns and brush, scorpions and fire, to emerge transformed by trials and adventure. Color, pattern, and symbolism express the complexity and beauty/ugliness of the hidden realms of the unconscious. These warriors wield knives, laser vision, and magic hand gestures to protect and liberate oneself from the obstacles of pain, betrayal, and cruelty. These characters operate as a spiritual double—infinite, indestructible, inside and all around—she is a guide that prepares one to be reborn fearlessly.
