"Sleeping Stan", 30"H x 42"W, watercolor"In the past year, I have been exploring the theme of personal identity and family relationships. I combine thinking about family history with my passion for art history. Images from centuries ago speak to my present day reflections on the nature of daily life. Visual and conceptual connections are made between images and events, past and present. Selected art historical imagery has been visually connected to my contemporary life circumstances, especially as related to familial and love relationships."
