An 8 part mixed media series exploring the theme of women believing they are the role they play in life – mum, wife, employee, friend, sister, neighbour, hermit etc and how they portray themselves to the world, everyday.
It’s difficult to be ‘you’ when so much is expected.
Sometimes we get lost in an ‘ideal’.

Be yourself, it’s ok :)

    So eye catching and I like what you say. It hadn’t occured to me that I was playing a role,
    because I was the role. Empty nests give you a new start…

  • Well said Marriet – thank you. My son will be 18 this year and my role is definitely changing :)

    this series is sooooo wonderful!! Are they in an exhibit (If not…they sure should be!!) or thy
    could be printed for note cards in a box..sold at your neighborhood gift store)….I say that , not having to do the foot work to get them seen…so just ignore me, if you want ;))).
    I do love the entire series and would love to see them out there…in the world.
