Research Projects/Interests

My focus has always been art and culture. My production history includes portrait painting in oils, fiberglass sculpture, performance and installation work and museum reproductions of ancient artifacts associated with the Goddess. 

I have been intensely involved for more than thirty five years with oral histories uncovered by my students interviewing and analyzing the lives of their mothers and other female relatives. A selection of these are now available in Library Archives and will, I am sure, convince anyone who reads enough of them that truth is often stranger than fiction and women are incredibly strong.
