Portrait of the Artist as a Woman. Historically a portrait has described the subject's presence, appearance and occasionally location. Frequently, when the subject was a woman, she was regarded as object and most attention was given to describing her topographically, her beauty or lack of it. I am more interested in finding the telltale signs of who, how and what she is: her character, her personality, her soul. I searched for the revelation of her individual qualities, knowing that some of those in turn would reveal universal traits applying to 'woman' and to 'artist'. Joyce's Dedalus was a rich and complex character….I wanted Angelina to be revealed in all of her textured realities. Henry James bored and even angered me with his Isabel who seemed one dimensional. I hoped to express the vitality present in a woman artist's life, through the language of her face and of her body.

Portraits of San Miguel is a series of portraits which includes friends, colleagues, acquaintances, children, and a number of folk, foreigners and Mexicans who have resided in San Miguel for at least forty years. The latter are to be presented in an upcoming book with Kris Rudolph. Some are famous; some relatively unknown. My interest was always who they are: gentle, kind, funny, smart, thinkers, doers, innately happy or profoundly sad, those things which presented themselves to me over a long period of time, or within the short interview time; not what they look like. They are produced in duotone using an almost khaki green-brown second tint...a colour somewhat less romantic than sepia.
