Women of Note is a growing collection of small portraits of women who fascinate me. Among them are artists, scientists, activists, and pioneering culture heroes. The portraits are postcard-sized. The papers are handmade, the colors are mostly very flat matte vinyl paint and the marks are Bic pen. I try to keep the image relatively simple and graphic. Yet, drawing a portrait, even from a photograph, is a very intimate activity and with the colors and drawing I try to feel into what I understand or imagine of the woman's personality. The portraits also inevitably carry my strong personal feelings about her and her place in history.
