When I started this year's collection of 16 abstract paintings for exhibition, my collection muse became white space. In the space between annual collections, is a burgeoning of new information in culture. I am an abstract painter employing random naturalistic methods, with deliberate, intelligent designs and expressions, a creation, not an accident. The physical practice of painting large abstract art & design is my artwork.


My influences: Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro’, Antonio Gaudi, Picasso, Hans Hoffman, Pollock, Bauhaus Arts & Design, Willhem Dekooning...Womans Series, Mark Rothko, Color Field Painters, Brice Marden, Piet Mondrian, Sister Corita Andy Warhol, YSL, chanel,  Diebenkorn. Clement Green, Robert Motherwell as critics.


In the space between, this year's presidential process was fodder. E pluribus unum, which is Latin for "Out of Many, One, “ became my response to the power of a women's thought from viewing the International Museum of Women's 2008 Exhibition | Women, Power & Politics.  I produce 'many' artworks  to teach 'ones' value' in the practice and production of ones work. I am working to inspire a new generation of creative thinkers.


In this world, I am a woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, artist & love. Practice acts of love, family, kindness, generosity & faith in creating great things, even if small. Humanity is valuable, when it values honor, grace, integrity. Regardless of ones place, one can choose to do small acts with great love: Mother Theresa,


My art, is my positive reflection on humanity. I work in my art practice toward refinement and commitment. I am a painter, photographer and conceptual artist, using media to produce my archive. Art can put forth ideas of  love & beauty.  The art world can offer the world these concepts. Art continues to be redefined & defined.


Women are the heart in culture. 


E pluribus unum, Latin for "Out of Many, One," is a motto requested by Pierre Eugene du Simitiere (originally Pierre-Eugène Ducimetière) and found in 1776 on the Seal of the United States, along with Annuit cœptis and Novus ordo seclorum, and adopted by an Act of Congress in 1782. The phrase originally came from Moretum, a poem attributed to Virgil but with the actual author unknown. In the poem text, color est e pluribus unus describes the blending of colors into one.


Public Art Project: World Geography & Abstract Art Lesson 

The purpose of this lesson is to introduce World Geography through Abstract Art. 



• Parts of a Map. Maps are one of the most important tools on Earth. They help us find places. To read a map, you need to understand its different parts. The first part of a map you need to know is the title. A map is a special drawing of a place or area. A symbol is a picture that represents an object. A map key explains what each symbol found means. A cartographer

is a mapmaker.


• A Compass Rose helps you find Direction. A simple compass rose may look like a plus sign with arrows. At the ends of each arrow the four cardinal directions are listed, they are North, South, East & West.The top arrow would point to the top of the map.


• Identity & Mark all 7 Continents: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, South America, North America,
