48 women, a kitten and pele

This collection was one I created in 2005-2006. It takes a look at the dynamics between women through fictional portraits of aunts, sisters, daughters, mothers, a cat and Pele. It was my initiation into the portrait world, where I use the human face as a vessel to express my own emotions. People often ask me who these women are. In effect, they are all me. But they were also the β€˜me’ that I would have liked to be.
