is a New York based illustrator who is making art for decades because her life depends on it!
She tries to evoke a sense of permanence, solidity, weight: time stopped, essences of ordinary events made tangible. As if she was leaving this life and had to take with her only a few very concrete images, filtered through wry detachment. Not ephemeral, but memory turned into object, monumentalized. However, she understands these paintings as makeshift contraptions, statements of recognition that essences-and memory-must be constructed, invented, not uncovered.
