Concerned by the vehemence of the political and social rhetoric of the past several years, I am creating, primarily in watercolor and pencil, portraits of men and women I meet every day.  Given the simplicity of the medium and without context to distract, the viewer must contemplate the character of the individual portrayed…to recognize that, while we are alone, we are profoundly connected to each other by experience and empathy.  In this way, one by one, we will look beyond the labels and begin to see that Together we…. Can be better. 

 

Each piece is part of an ongoing work, which currently numbers 32.  Each can be sold separately or in groups as chosen by the viewer.
