I am an independent artist working directly with the public, using the traditional trade of silhouettes. I interpret and demonstrate the role of portraiture, and society experiences with portraits, chiefly between 1700-1920 (Modern Era).
Current interests include making and using reproductions of embroidered leather shoes, bone ice skates, and functional leather shoes, as well as demonstrating them, studying their effectiveness, and teaching others about them.
