Alter Ego: Forest Fairy

2013
12″ x 16″
stained glass, batik fabric

“Forest Fairy” was my first alter ego self portrait*. It is based on a photograph of myself at age 23. While I don’t necessary identify with fairies (I do find them fascinating!), this photo suggested “fairy” to me. The background is batik fabric, which I believe gives it a muted forest-like feeling.

*Alter ego portraits are an exploration of the many facets of human personality and dimension.
