These works explore themes of fashion in an investigation of the role clothing plays in conveying identity.  Fashion is  self-expression and self-invention and can be a way to challenge societal boundaries.  It is a tool to either cultivate a peer group or differentiate ourselves and reflects the human need to be visible.  Working from live models, I created the drawings that became the inspiration behind these mixed media pieces.  The layering of various collaged elements onto the paintings helped to create energetic works that hint at abstraction.
