    For this exhibit inspiration came from looking at her son’s discarded high school notebooks hoping to catch a glimpse of his inner world. Through this search she discovered pages of exquisite, tiny geometrical drawings sandwiched between lecture notes, sprinkled in margins and crammed edge to edge on back covers. Created in the unselfconscious state typical of doodlers, the shapes seemed to represent a secret, indecipherable language. She realized that these doodles could be geometric diagrams, hieroglyphs, or pictographs -some kind of mysterious language or alphabet. In an effort to decipher these shapes, she began to incorporate them as compositional elements in her work. The viewer can walk into a dimensional space where the symbols spin, float or twirl. Some of her pieces are doors, others windows. They are all portals. She continues to use these symbols because they are a joyous and mysterious language that is somehow both deeply personal and universal.
