I continue to work with masks and make-up. My subjects are such great models and so far have been artist themselves.

Day of the Dead - Olivia Roach is a make-up artist. She does make-up for most of the theater work in this area and is currently working on a movie doing the make-up design. I saw her work earlier this fall in the musical, The Color Purple. She is incredibly talented. Although she is still a senior in high school, she is working in the real world workforce and doing what she loves!  

 Steampunk Sister -  Alice Traore is a painter, graphic artist, jewelry designer, and an extremely talented writer.  She also does some modeling in Madison, Wisconsin, where she lives, which makes it so easy to photograph her.  Her thought-provoking writing has been published and her many talents are currently utilized at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She's also my best friend.

Masked - Gabrielle Elizabeeth Marie-Test draws and paints and is also a wonderful model. She has modeled for me on several occasions and is the model in a couple of pieces I've won awards for. She modeled for "Masked" which is currently in the ME Exhibition at Studios on Sheridan. It depicts the many masks we must wear to meet the challenges and demands of life. I really enjoy working with her because she's truly professional.
