In my recent and ongoing body of work, Pantyhose Self-Portraits, I continue my exploration of personal and collective

female identity.  Pantyhose is rife with dualities: hiding/revealing, constricting/expanding, visible/invisible, beautiful/ugly, etc. 

I use the nylons in unusual, provocative, and often surreal ways.  The object wraps, covers my head, becomes a straightjacket

of sorts, spills from my body like psychic entrails, entangles my limbs, and a myriad of other scenarios. These images reference

issues of not only gender, but also aging and sexuality.
