Lockdown was interesting. I went big paper. Charcoal and inks had their day. I had my eyes closed most of the time, feeling the paper, feeling life, listening to the sound of my breathing ... and I drew breath. My pre-covid figurative work re-evaluates the place of women in societies that demanded beauty from them, freeing the sitters of Holbein, Vermeer and Klimt from the constraints of corsets. The corsets are off, and they are not going back on.
