Abstract: This paper represents an attempt to shed light on the creative efforts of this artist. Some of the problems which have arisen in the process of creating and explaining the existence of fifteen thesis paintings are presented. Contemplation and soul searching have gone into this procedure, for this artist is vitally concerned with the meaning of art and her relation to it. This has been an impelling search—one that has taken precedence over other problems of Importance. Many times the question has been asked: "What is Art?." Art has meant different things to different people throughout recorded history. As man grows and develops, man's art reflects these changes. As changes take place within his environment, his concept of art reflects these changes.
