Long Coat Ladies in the Woods

  • I often draw these figures in long blobby coats with lots of pattern, I call them "Long Coat Ladies". In  these pieces I explored making these ladies in 3D and in color. My first piece was made for an assignment called "Spheres of Influence", the piece inspired by Koloman Moser and the illustrator Sophie Page.  After making the first piece I decided to then also make an accordion book version.
