Art Work > Portraits

One huge element missing from life during the Pandemic is people. We are all forced into isolation more than is normal.

During the brief loosening of restrictions over the summer, I was able to socialize a bit with friends and family.

In these appliquéd and collaged portraits, I use common household materials like fabric scraps and tape to convey moments and gestures of those visits.
