Penelope In The Peonies
11 x 14 inches
Acrylic, charcoal, and copper leaf on heavy paper
"My work sometimes bridges both interior and exterior elements creating an entirely surreal world, which can be traced to my love of fantasy and science fiction. In the early stages of this series, I developed a fascination with vintage wallpaper and fabric that continues to inspire much of the pattern play in these works. My images are also heavily influenced by the style and characteristics of vintage photography which provide a sense of history, nostalgia, and timelessness."
