This body of work is about the value we place on invisible labor that women perform. These collages are inspired by historical representations of women from digitized museum collections, mostly photographs of women at work or depictions of women found on objects traditionally used in the home. These women are integrated with – and their bodies are colonized by – feminine motifs and domestic patterns.

After graduating from the Memphis College of Art I began to build experience and clientele working in the advertising community of Memphis and the MidSouth area. Eventually I launched a successful free-lance career as a designer and illustrator. Since my retirement I have been taking commissions for pen and ink renderings and portraits of beloved pets!
Wonders of Heaven and Earth
I am pleased to be showing a small group of paintings at Fratelli’s Cafe. It’s a wonderful place to share some of my expressions of all things bright and beautiful. The paintings don’t need to be explained or described. I think the show theme says what it’s all about.
The Fratelli's Cafe Gallery monthly art exhibits are on display in Fratelli's Cafe Gallery during cafe hours. Monday - Saturday 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. We love for you to stop in and have a look even if you are not dining at the cafe! If you want to give the artist feedback don't hesitate to find the art event posting on Memphis Botanic Garden's Facebook page and post your comment. We are happy to connect you with the artist and pass your feedback along. Enjoy!
All exhibited pieces are available for purchase, with a portion of proceeds directly benefiting the garden's art, education and horticulture programs.
