With words and images, I am telling my story. Through art, through sculpture, I am remembering HERstory...

from the feminine mystique

- mixed media on paper -
"If a woman's needs for identity, for self-esteem, for achievement and finally for expression of her unique human individuality are not recognized by herself or others in our culture, she is forced to seek identity and self-esteem in the only channels open to her; the pursuit of sexual fulfillment, motherhood, and the possession of material things.  And chained to these pursuits, she is stunted at a lower level of living, blocked from the realization of her higher human needs."
- Betty Friedan
