1. Tribute to Alma Thomas (2020) – watercolor on watercolor paper, 12 x 9 in.

My prints and drawings are part process and result, to self-educate about all of the feminist and women artists before and around me. My drawings are playful self-portraits exploring self through my body. The depictions of influential art in the background recall impactful artists (names in titles). The raw, intimate drawings connect to the viewer as another (sensual) person.
My body prints are made to abstract the body while recognizing all bodily and gendered implications; with text by feminist artists scripted and erased in the background (artist names in titles) pointing to our historical absence.
