Artist Statement

Entwine and Chambers are two series of large-scale watercolor paintings on paper. They are fantasies, but at the same time definite places that become respites in an overly embellished environment that is the world in which we live. Formal landscapes at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Architectural interiors at a colonial-era mansion in Philadelphia are the references for the work.
