    I love it that you incorporate photographs of your Mother into your artwork. I can see that she is such an inspiration to you! It's interesting how you connect the images with film quotes. I always love to learn where the inspiration comes from a particular piece, it's obvious some times and not so obvious at other times. Love the colors you've picked, very striking! And that picture of NY City is amazing. So glad that you experiment and share your passion!

    My mother was extremely photogenic, and I love these vintage photos. All my illustrations are based on photos (I use Photoshop), but it's fun to see the photos in a new context.

      Thanks, Jasmine. This is actually a drawing (done on Photoshop, but without filters), and it took me ages to do… I only use Photoshop Elements, and I feel that there's so much to learn, still.
