"Outwardly Perfect" Series




About a year ago, I found a group of vintage plastic fashion figurines at an antique shop, and was immediately inspired by them. This series is about women who would appear to have everything, yet are totally messed up on the inside.

The are all collaged onto cradled masonite using photographs, tissue, paper, oil pastel, mica, glitter, vintage silver string, fabric mesh, and all held together with beeswax. They range in sizes between 9"x12" and 12"x16". They are all approx 3/4" deep.

AND, they were just chosen to be included in a one night only (December 21st) party/show at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Please visit www.artnowsf.com for more details. YEAH!!!!!!!!
