Abstract: As a woman artist , I create my own places to exist. My self-portraits are full of emotion , thought , and creative energy and are made to engage the viewer in an intimate moment. I work by transforming thoughts and emotions into photographs and then alter the image. The creative process is an intuitive call and response between me and the materials. I continue to manipulate the surface until the discourse is complete and the piece is balanced. I empower my gaze and the intimacy of prolonged eye contact to portray the strength of my vulnerability and my desire to connect , acknowledge , and interact with my viewer. My gaze is commanding and requests your return gaze. There is no question that I am looking at you.
