Artist's description:

In my work I use elements and principles of design symbolically. For example, in my large drawing In the Kitchen, the focus is on the dirty dishes on the counter rather than on the girl. This speaks to the responsibilities of having a family or significant other and how that can essentially compromise or even destroy the creative part of yourself. I think this wouldn’t have annoyed me this much, it these little sacrifices happen all the time – walking away from what’s important to what is “necessary”. In the Kitchen is drawn from my experience walking into a kitchen mess left behind by my husband. I remember as if it was just yesterday; it was 3:00 pm, sunlight was trying to make its way through the blinds, and I recall thinking to myself, “I’d rather be doing art, than being distracted.” When gigantic mess was cleaned, I spent drawing a few hours straight in front of my easel expressing my thoughts. The dark hands cascading down the woman’s back are meant to represent the wings of creativity, but they are dark and heavy as if they root the figure to the ground
