Architectural Image

The slanting stripe that bisects this painting represents a path: "a journey people take," the artist explains, through terrain that is "a mixture of west and east." The image reflects her hope of moving forward in her adopted world while remaining connected to her ancestral faith (symbolized by the outlined structures in the top right area of the painting) and the legacy of her homeland.
