My work covers a broad spectrum, from very large to very small, from public to intensely personal,
from abstract to figurative, and across a range of media: painting and drawing, collage, assemblage,
paper maché, concrete, ceramic, and mosaics.
A few of my public works can be seen around San Francisco. Tonantsin Renace, a red-skinned Aztec
goddess mural in paint, relief, and mosaic, is located on 16th St. at Sanchez. I collaborated with
my husband, Mark Roller, on two cast-concrete relief murals flanking the entrance to the Oceanview
Branch Library at 345 Randolph St. (ride the M streetcar to get there), and on a mosaic-clad
sculpture of a giant serpent at the 24th St. Minipark in the Mission, 24th between Bryant & York.
Ceramicist Aileen Barr and I have collaborated on two mosaic stairways, one at 16th Avenue and Moraga,
in the Sunset District, and another at Temple Judea in Tarzana, CA. A third stairway is in the works,
which you can read about at www.hiddengardensteps.org.
I also have some installations in Chinatown, a series of 100 small mosaic panels at Ping Yuen Housing
Project, and a mosaic mural on the theme of Chinese kites at the new Chinatown Recreation Center,
1199 Mason St., San Francisco.
