 Women’s Caucus for Art

I am an artist who uses fabricated components in a variety of media and found power objects to make art for the purpose of provoking discussions and reflection on a wide variety of social topics.  When I travel, I always choose memory objects to represent an experience or event at each location visited on my travels.  Deep South 2012 records a visit to a history friend’s  son’s alligator ranch in Texas,  a work friend’s home in Louisiana, my daughter’s ebook empire in Alabama and several locations in Florida.  The almost 2-D  handmade book is the deconstruction of the 3-D journal.  Women are the record keepers of our relational world.
