Embedded within both the process and the finished works is the notion of the everyday. These paintings are painted in the garage and constructed from things left over from everyday life or within reach of the subject matter, i.e. available to someone experiencing the early stages of motherhood. The effect is that the paintings begin to operate as an extension to daily life rather then being separate from it. To imply meaning within these basic assemblages is to apply meaning to daily life.
