I want and have always wanted to tell the story of living a life the way a woman would—through art. Not the same story as a man might tell! This piece “Longingly Beautiful” is the last of the monoprint series based on my mother’s short story “Women not born Beautiful” which tells the story of a young girl who has a strikingly beautiful mother but considers herself plain looking. The story questions are usual assumptions about beauty and women. It is one of my favorite! Soon I hope to have a series of books of her short stories for sale.
