Self Portrait Series

After living in Austin, TX, for two years, I left my job in 2017 and returned to Chicago so my husband could accept a position at The Art Institute. This period between full-time work allowed me the space and time to devote to my (then stagnant) artmaking practice. To take full advantage, I made it my mission to explore new styles and materials - once I began making self portraits, it became obvious that this was an ideal method for exploration - the same subject (me) being a constant for the play of always-changing style and media.
Materials include ink, gouache, acrylic, collage, pencil, and colored pencil.
