The Winter's Tale: Violet

For this piece, I decided to showcase the moment when Leontes, old and guilt ravaged, sees a statue of his long dead wife, Hermione, come alive again.  Also take note some Sicilian symbolism, the bear and the shepherd who found baby Perdita.

Othello: Red

This representation of the Moor of Venice was largely inspired by my trip to the Alhambra several years ago.  I love the complexity of Moorish architecture and patterns—the relationship with Desdemona and the scheming eyes of Iago are featured among them.

Adventure Animals (ink + wash paintings for my son)

For these paintings, I decided to combine the animal motif of my son's room with images that could be found in classic, adventure movies.  I used the gouache paint + a nib pen for detail.
