It Doesn't Fit Anymore Series
 
  This project grew out of a mutual interest in images from the Victorian era, along with literature produced by female authors about women who were strong and independent and with a mind of their own rebelled against what men and society expected of them.
During this time period, not only were women bound and restricted both mentally and emotionally, but physically as well.  In the series It Doesn’t Fit Anymore, the articles of clothing represent the restrictions that were placed on women. A strong woman with a sense of self, struggles to remove the bonds that of which constrains her. The pieces in this exhibit started as black & white images that have been torn, layered, fragmented and colored with acrylic and oil paints to create a sense of history. (48x48" on wood panels)
