Artwork/ Shop > Paintings 2007-2011

My artwork examines and embraces the changing roles of women. Both my paintings and metalwork reveal the conflict I feel about fulfilling traditional feminine roles while seeking my own independence. Sometimes I see my paintings as a celebration of finding magic within the mundane, of being happy with the ordinary. At other times, my work reads to me as a commentary on the roles a female has occupied in recent western history. The reappearing goldfish in my paintings symbolize this duality. A goldfish traditionally represents abundance, happiness, and good fortune; however, it can also be a symbol of entrapment. In domestication it can only grow to the size of its bowl.
