The Discarded Series
Antique snap shots spurred my Discarded series of works. Over years of browsing. I’d often find myself sifting through bins of black and whites, and polaroids, looking carefully at each person and wondering who they were, and how they ended up for sale like that. I decided to start a series of paintings featuring these images. I’ve worked in multiple mediums for this series, including transparent watercolor, encaustic and collage.
