The artist traces her struggles over an extended period of time. A myriad of mediums are employed in the interest of getting the material out in an honest and direct way. Scale is relatively small, a reflection of the need to achieve continuity within a limited amount of available studio time.

Fabric, sewing, and clay reflect a subtext about the traditional role of women as caretaker, homemaker, and child's playmate. Gouache, pencil, and computer technology round out the vision.
