Residenza per artisti in Toscana

  • USA

My work draws inspiration from patterns and objects in the decorative arts and art history. Through my work I want to tell a story. - biographical and historical. Using design and still life elements, I create a symbolic portrait of an inspirational woman artist. In each portrait, I am appropriating imagery from the artist’s body of work and combining her visual language with period cultural production, such as textile patterns, lace and/or ceramics. All subjects are researched from museum archives, auction listings and literary sources. I relish how each object and pattern has a layered story to tell about it’s origin and prominence. I delight in the stories of these ladies and consider my narrative antidote a part of each piece. Through my work, I hope to introduce viewers to significant figures in art, ignite their imagination and raise awareness for lesser known artists.
