The act of decorating text, a page from a traditional, typically ancient story dealing with supernatural beings, ancestors, or heroines that serves as a fundamental type in the world view of a people by explaining aspects of the natural world or delineating the psychology, customs, or ideals. A thought, a sudden obsession. The object of unreasonably obsessive attention. An object thought to have mystical or spiritual powers. A series or explanations based loosely on feminist retelling of classic myths, fairy tales, and personal ruminations.

Myths, fables and fairy tales explain culturally accepted ideals about these worlds by presenting the unexplainable, unknown or other through archetypes understood on visual, verbal and pre-verb levels,
This body of work uses these levels of understanding to address the ambiguous space between reality and fiction where the female form and therefore female often dwell. The works in this series concentrate on psychological, religious, cultural and social issues that women deal with everyday such as: reproduction and reproductive rights, discovery, knowledge, success, creativity, class systems, colonization, compliance and silence.
