A LOOK BACK: Portraits

A collection of portraits of people in my life. The first (above) is a small quilt. The fabric was block printed with a linoleum cut I made of my friend, Tina. Part of a series of quilts, all of which were portraits of mothers, each accompanied by a written piece on motherhood. I was a new mother myself at the time.

The black and white acrylic painting is of my dad, inspired by a stone sculpture.

I took a class on Japanese printmaking which is where I made this portrait of my niece when she was 8 or so. Lastly, an india ink sketch of my friend Elim, who I met at a comix class when I was living in NYC.
