Mixed Media

Artist Statement

 

I have always loved vintage advertisements, especially from the 1930's and 40's. I have a few magazines in my studio from that era.

 

I wanted to incorporate them into a mixed media work.

I have painted landscapes for years, but occasionally I like to create something that allows me to loosen up with the paint brush.

 

I have found that advertisements from this period of time created a preconceived notion about women and their role in life. Housewife, Mother and Wife were all created as labels from a society of what men believed a woman should be.
