In my artwork I seek to portray the duality of strength and delicacy, simplicity and complexity, intellectual order and emotional impact in portraiture and figural compositions.

These attributes are often aligned with the concept of the "feminine mystique". My portrayal of this "feminine mystique" is exemplified by the creation of the illusion of lace like textures which shift between transparency and opacity. A layered transparent effect is created through incising techniques on clay board an/or dry point etching techniques on acetate.

The work created in this manner also alludes to the attraction and constraints of the elusive "feminine mystique."
