Nostalgic Beauty Series
The inspiration for this new work comes from my large collection of vintage hair styling magazines. Being in the Beauty industry for almost 20 years you see the absurdity and the advertising of "perfect" to women as a never ending song that is always playing in the background. Examining my relationship to this beauty propaganda and my part in it thru a whimsical approach and the bright colors of youth is at the heart of this series. Work is created with acrylic paint, beauty imagery, and found and created papers.

Layers - an exploration of the moments that make our selves...
These pieces are built with layers and layers of paint and papers. I love the idea of so many images being "buried" beneath the final image you see on the surface. When someone meets you they only see the image presented today and not the moments and experiences that make up today's self. Flip thru the slideshow of the creation of the first piece in the gallery called "Inheritance" to see images of a few of the layers hidden below the final surface.
