"I organize eachwork on the basis that different characters in the painting reflect different facets of the personality.

Other vital elements in the brew include fragments from my models' lives and my relationships with them." She concludes her artist statement with a quote from Joseph Campbell, "It is the business of the artist to re-interpret myth from [her] own time."
