Self Portrait Series

In September 2017 my husband accepted a job at The Art Institute in Chicago and so I left my job in Austin, TX and we returned to Chicago.  This period between full-time work allowed me the space and time to devote to my (then stagnant) practice. To take full advantage, I made it my mission to explore new styles and materials - I started painting self-portraits and found them to be a perfect & obvious method for exploration - the same subject (me) being a constant for the play of always-changing style and media.

Materials so far include ink, gouache, acrylic, collage, pencil, and colored pencil.
