In focusing my work on New Orleans, I have been starting with ink drawings, charcoal studies, a small painting, and then moving to a larger canvas.
The progression of steps seems to be working well, helping me to sort out and solve issues prior to working on a larger version, and I am happy with the results of the yellow house ( 20 x 30"), still in progress.
I am just back from New Orleans, so have lots of pictures to sort through.
This blog began around my journey through the wonderful MFA program at Lesley University College of Art and Design; I graduated in 2019. My work interrogates ideas around place: what makes a place feel like home, what gives comfort or discomfort. I am intrigued by long history of a place and questions of whose footsteps we follow and what can be learned from a place.
