My daughter is 15 years old.

These were drawn during the pandemic, when fifteen year-olds can't really do much - no in-person school, no parties with friends, no fun to be had. So sometimes my daughter would get dressed, put on makeup, and then just eat dinner with the family. These drawings are from one of those days. She agreed to sit (stand) for me, I think, because she had spent so much time thinking about what to wear, and she was willing to let me capture it.

The pandemic is particularly hard on 15 year-olds.

I am proud that my daughter has been able to keep it together. It's like she gets all the bad stuff from school - tests and homework - combined with endless zoom meetings - without any of the good stuff - seeing friends, going out in the world, getting coffee, etc. I think these drawings capture the inbetweeness that defines teenagers, but also that defines this time. We're all waiting for life to get back to normal, but for her, she's waiting to move forward to the next stage of her life. 

Four faces for four phases

One of the challenges of this work was showing the same person from four different angles and having it look like her in all cases. I've never painting anything like this, but I'm pretty happy with how these came out. They have an ethos of fashion illustrations, but there's a personality behind each drawing that transcends that style. These drawings are the basis of my first 3d work, a multidimensional paper doll, that sits on a desk or a table. 

The actual print is beautiful.

I am so excited about the quality of the print. It's uncanny how it captures all the nuance and subtle coloration of the original. People who have seen my prints cannot believe that they are not looking at an original. It's not a poster, but rather a full representation of my vision.

I use a top-of-the-line Epson printer with pigment ink that is tested to last 200 years. I print on Hahnemühle German Etching all-cotton archival 310 g/mA Paper.

Each print (except the postcard size) is numbered and signed by me.

Beautiful expressive print that captures a crucial historical moment perfectly!

If this moment in time had you worried about our democratic process and our continued fight for civil rights you will love this print!

The Big Rain Roses have not yet been hung -- they are leaning against a wall, waiting until my son moves out and I take over his room for office and crafting space. But the first day I saw these in morning light, I immediately smiled and thought to myself, "Confectionery!" The colors are both full and soft, the water-streaked effect is evocative, and the blue is particularly compelling (as seems to be the case in the Palm Court painting as well). My mother was a great lover of roses, but they are tricky to grow through Florida summers. These two prints give me both the memory of roses and the memory of my mom.

Palm Court, the painting takes me back to Palm Court, the place and my mind floods with all of the great memories of it.
