She obtains old doors, cuts and preps them and then collages her photography, magazine and newspaper clippings, maps, candy wrappers and other found objects that work with her painted imagery to help describe New Orleans in these backgrounds. With this she strives to achieve an overall sense of abstract unity, with that working an eyecatching intriguing painting emerges. These paintings portray the strong feeling and obsession she seems to have with the eccentric city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Whether these images appear to be blatent or subtle the overpowering precise sense of New Orleans shines through with great success.
