To discover and uncover the invisible images and material in photography, film and video has been my pursuit for over twenty-five years as a pioneer lesbian artist. I have made over eighty film and videos since 1968. All my work is about revealing, showing, expressing, uncovering that which has not been seen before. I try to give voice and image to those who have been denied personal expression. I continue to be involved in formal structure determined by the content of the material. Over the years my films and videos have evolved to dense referential montages characterized by a challenging montage/collage of image and audio. I seek to empower the viewing audience to "make their own film" by working in a non-linear, metaphoric and fragmented manner. It is a political act to work and speak as a lesbian artist in the dominant art world and to speak as an avant-garde artist to a lesbian and gay audience. My presence and voice address both issues of homophobia as well as the need for an emerging community to explore a new imagination.
