Milestones: Work described as, “…narrates the overlap between our collective subconscious, relationships between universal atomic physicalities and the norms of everyday life, especially that of urban life. In her mixed media paintings the artist utilizes photographs, still shots from her films, newspapers, and other literature as a source of narrative imagery. In the past several years, major hardware stores have been the suppliers of art materials in her work.” ; Film influences : Man Ray, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch ; Sold incredibly well on Ebay before the 2008 crash (beginning 2003) ; developed her own studio to support her online sales ; created her own alternative gallery system through her Art Raw gallery bringing together curators and artists ; Sold over $105k in art within a short eight week period ;
