Artist Statement:
 
"My brushstrokes project feeling in the form of affection, at the same time, my art seeks a grand ground, one in which color and composition are used for their ability to connect with an inner truthfulness. I remain committed to painting, its ability to convey feeling and thought, while my art reflects my investigation as a woman coming to terms with many influences - among them philosphy, motherhood, music and myth."  Sidra
