|The Painted Ladies|
|Little White Lines|
|George Washington Parkway|
Through my work, I am examining the intersections of the Decorative Arts and the Fine Arts. The silhouetted historical vessels are sourced from museum archives and auction listings. I’m drawn to their manufacturing history and the early globalization trends. Each painting represents a time and place in history, appropriated and abstracted. The patterns in each image are based on historical sources as well. I’m particularly drawn to the history and linear structure of lace. In “The Painted Ladies” series, I’m creating portraits of particular women in history. Some of the portraits are based on specific works of art as well. I relish that each element of my paintings is carefully researched. These layers of history ignite my imagination and hopefully inspire a viewer to learn more.
