“The differing approaches which I take to various subject matter, ranging from the realistic through the suggestive to the abstract, reflect the various levels of dialogue available to me at the time of creation.
Always to be found, underlying my creative pulse, is a female perspective in a world that is still clearly male dominated.”
dlmorrow strives for 100% reused, recycled or reclaimed materials in her creations in order that she not be adding to the garbage on the planet.
