THE FIGURE I am interested in the challenge of portraying the figure. As a child, I was immensely in awe of what I saw in the Mexican Vintage calendars with white-complected couples painted in romantic memories of old Mexico. Creating paper dolls and caricatures was the start of my drive. The body's architecture, with many unique nuances, surfaces, and subtle curves, is mind-blowing. I am curious about the relationships of the nose to eyes, to mouth, to ears, how the arms fall, and how the hand rests. I ask questions about how the pelvis is compared to how the back twists.Then, in looking closely, there are a myriad of hues that convey light and tone. It is truly overwhelming but an adventure!
