Words from the Artist: 

The character in this painting is loud and full of life and personality. The attributes of her dress are so well defined and autonomous and within each layer it is apparent to how it was created. This intentional mark making was created to be a metaphor for this character’s people pleasing personality- able to pick and choose pieces of herself to showcase to fit in with and impress whoever is in front of her. As this series has evolved, I have allowed the unspoken personality and atmosphere of each scene to dictate the style in which it is painted.
