Lugubrious Distance is a book about the artist's feelings of longing for her home state of North Carolina. "Noticing the unnoticed is a running theme in the work I produce. I raise the ordinary to the surface because I find it to be the most honest, vibrant, and beautiful. Beauty is just fine with me."
