Artist Statement:
The inspiration for this work is my personal travel through grief and the loss of my love unexpectedly in 2019. This is one of several in a series. The title is what I came to understand the process to be for those who remain, as we walk through our sorrow and find ourselves still holding a desire to embrace life,"Mining for Gold in an Avalanche I."

To be an Nasty Woman in the arts in my belief is to be a woman willing to be authentic and real, to embrace the best and worst life brings as its offerings. One of my favorite writers, Arundhati Roy, puts it best for me when she writes in The Cost of Living,“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.” To be real in the constant bombardment to be something else, is what it means to be a Nasty Woman in the Arts.
