Since 2013, I have created figurines, mixed-media pieces and paintings for a series I call Women In Trouble.
My interest in issues that women face starts with my mom, who grew up during the great depression and had to leave school at an early age to tend to her four siblings. Like many people that endured the great depression, she was damaged by poverty and never recovered. As a married adult, she stayed at home and raised two children but wound up unequipped to handle a job or further her own education.
One of the figurines was selected by the Brenda Taylor Gallery and Astral Housewives was exhibited at Ivan Karp's OK Harris Gallery, both in New York City.
Women in Trouble also appear in an experimental booklet that mixes comic strips with fine art.
