Artist Statement

What makes a woman feminine? Why do women adorn themselves with the belief that certain objects or chemicals enhance this quality? Do these objects have any presence when removed from the woman? Have we imbued these objects with a quality that they do not actually possess? In my work I am exploring these questions through depictions of the female figure and the objects used to adorn that figure. The meticulous process of removing ink from scratchboard one line at a time speaks to the complex and detailed processes many women participate in every day in the belief that they are enhancing their beauty.
