Coat Series, The Gathering


Coat Series, The Gathering
Collage, ink
20 x 28"


Inspiration for my work can always be found in an old photo album belonging to Grandma. It lives in the cedar chest that I have loved my entire life and own now that Grandma is gone although I  recently became infatuated with the photos for my work. Grandma and her sister, Doris, grew up in a small, dusty Oklahoma town so they knew everyone. Many social events in the 1920's for them involved church activities and groups of "kids" for every activity. It is this group of kids that inspired my Coat Series, 2013.
So, in memory and honor of my grandparents, The Gathering is created with various papers and ink.
