women in shorthand series: the original artwork was done in pencil, charcoal, and oil paint on the pages of a sawed-in-half gregg shorthand manual. actual size of originals is 3.5 by 5 inches. 2014-2015.
the source photos for these images were chosen based on instinct. some of them are well-known historical or current figures, actresses, artists, musicians, or icons. if their name is known by me, i indicated as such in the photo caption. if you haven't heard of the names, look them up. they are all very compelling. others are anonymous, found in books or online, chosen because their beauty and expressions inspired me.
some framed originals are available for purchase on etsy.
