Naughty Doll

I started this naughty doll a while ago, and decided to finish her for this show I have up locally.
stuffed, gessoed fabric and oil paint

Discomfort With Finding Yourself

This is a painting about, well..what the title suggests. The egg represents hope for an answer, in finding comfort in oneself. Hope that you will eventually feel okay in your own skin. I was feeling really off when I sketched this idea out, and it felt good to draw a girl that only felt comfortable if her nose was hidden., better a cone than a hideous (to her) nose.
