artist statement

My latest body of work is an imaginary history project. Drawn primarily on vintage paper, I create memories of fictitious female relatives all stylishly coiffed in historically accurate hairstyles from the 1960s and 70s. The resulting portraits are an amalgamation of my own identity as an artist and art historian. Through these portraits, I hope viewers will see history and hair as canvases for creativity.
