Artist Statement

These works are executed on printmaking paper prepared with gesso, using mixed media, such as colored pencil, pastel, charcoal, tempera paint and gouache. The matte finish of the tempera and gouache layered over the paper provide an excellent surface for various drawing medium, allowing the linear elements to intermingle with the more painterly elements of the piece. In sum, the style of works represent a transitional realm between drawing and painting.

The content of the work reflects a fascination for the human figure, in particular, the face and its endless elasticity and ability to express what words can not. Period costume and ornamentation add an additional cultural and historical element to the work. All of the subjects, though varied in their portrayal, are autobiographical on some level, depicting the growth of the executor as a woman, a mother, and an artist.
