Hello readers,

I made this drawing and the sketches below today in preparation  for the beginning of a series of miniature paintings that I am planning.  I usually like to work very large, but working full-time cuts down considerably on my studio time.  So I have decided to create small contemporary works with high impact.  The continual thread in my work is bringing up from the subterranean depths of the subconscious – both personal and collective – images of feminine power so that they may become a subject of discussion and awareness in contemporary life.
