Painting and drawing have made a welcomed return in my life. I continue to push myself in new directions and have enjoyed seeing my work change and come back to teach me something new.
At the moment I find myself drawn to nostalgic objects, in particular vintage bathing suits and the stories (real or imagined) of the women who filled them. Bathing suits hide as much as they reveal and expose. Like a woman's body, the fabric folds and becomes thread bare and worn, yet she is still strong and imposing.
Both the bathing suit and the female form continue to be a rich source of inspiration to explore and understand memory, nostalgia and womanhood's transitional phases, drawing strength from drawing.
