She uses the term SoFlo Superflat to describe the genre. It is an urban pop art movement  that combines super-bright colors and ultra flat images. The subject matters are very diverse.   Artist working in this style  emphasize outlines and flat areas of color. What is important is the feeling of flatness. Our culture in SoFlo doesn't have 3-D,"  anymore instead we have  the compression of genres which is  shown through the pop-inflected work.

Kaleidoscope on the Square

Kaleidoscope on the Square is a 330 ft fence installation project that  brings together the diverse community that makes up the north end of the city of West Palm Beach, FL .  This area is a tightly woven kaleidoscope of culture. With the community as our inspiration, the collective  created a colorful woven fiber installation on the fence. Each colorful thread, represents the energy, spirit and creativity of the community all woven into geometric patterns, shows how diverse cultural elements become one to transform the fence into a Kaleidoscope of color.   The project was sponsored by the West Palm Beach CRA and AIPP.

Our 'revolution', is to change the paradigm of what is considered art in this community. Beauty comes in many different forms and uses endless mediums. Our goal is to eradicate the misconception that 'street art' is bad by exposing new viewers to the varied gifted artists that this city envelops. It is this combined dynamic that caused us to choose the name 'Street Art Revolution'. Some of the most prolific artists in Palm Beach County will not be found in upscale galleries so to make their voices heard they seek to turn bland local walls into entrancing masterpieces. Our mission is to give them both a platform and an audience.


Overview of Project

The program will invite one or two local artists per season (fall, winter, spring, and summer) according to wall availability. In partnership with West Palm Beach Art in Public Place, West Palm Beach DDA, and other community stakeholders, each mural project will integrate programming with other artistic disciplines (such as poetry, music, theater, and fashion).

Embroidery  can easily be construed as decorative and therefore dismissed by contemporary art audiences.   The work of embroidery and decoration of textiles is associated with women, therefore, historically speaking, an undervalued activity. So by taking this formerly undervalued work, and raising it to an art form, I am challenging the stigmas associated with fiber art in contemporary art. For that reason it is necessary for me to put extra focus on the conceptual framework behind my art

My work initially starts from visual research, looking primarily at photographs of appropriate subjects which I manipulate into my own language. Color is a very important component to my  work and that color palette is inspired by the Huichol Indian’s technique of alternating strong and soft colors to achieve the effects of complementary opposition and to create dynamic balance. Many of my fiber pieces are inspired by history and Central American culture . History is not simply the recording of past events ¬ it is a living, breathing entity, filling the space of our present and shaping contemporary identities.  Generally, each piece contains about 150 hand  stitches per square inch.


AVANT-GARDE  Quilts

“Quilts have always lent themselves to giving a voice to the unheard”Stacy Hollander, curator of the American Folk Art Museum’

Quilts are the democratic fusions of the distinguished heritage of painting, the new emerging field of digital art and the domestic practice of quilting.  Part of my quilt work practices includes the use of digital sublimation printing on cloth, video quilts, graffiti, and photographs.When quilts are taken out of the usual context and put in the new, they are given an entirely new character.

Video Art

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s moving portraits, “Film Project” is a continuous series of works utilizing the moving image.  The idea is to create moving graffiti mural paintings that encompass transformation and change. Audiences often only see the end of the creative process when a painting is in a static mode. Through the use of new technology the organic process of  surrealist abstraction can  be captured and shared in a spherical process.  Exploring beyond the frontiers of conventional paintings.
