I am excited to explore my illustrative creativity in this new project that stars my sweet pup in a new children's book I've been working on. The story explains how lovable she is despite her very crooked teeth and less than attractive appearance. She has to overcome moving to a new area and making an impression on the new people.
I have revisited my series of Girls in White Dresses with a new collection of paintings that push the boundaries more with abstraction of shapes and loose edges. The exploration of the way light plays on white fabric has always intrigued me. I have been a great admirer of John Singer Sargent's work especially his watercolors of women outdoors. I started this series of paintings that focus on the way the light hits young women in the flowing dresses. In my previous series I focused more on the girls and their environment, their innocence and strength. In this new series I hope to focus more on the mood and the fabric itself.
