Tahitian girl by yohabroha
Tahitian girl
I am started going through old books inherited from my grandparents on the various islands of the Pacific.  I'm drawing portraits I of pacific islander woman as an homage to the matrilineal society of the Palauan culture.

Information on the original image I was looking at - Caption of original photo, "Koror woman of high rank". From the book, "South Pacific" authors' Jack and Dorothy Fields, 1972. From the library of Gerald and Lillian Phillips, New Braunfels, Texas. ‪#‎inprogress‬

Interests
a quick update.

I relocated back in August.  I'm no longer residing in Peoria, Illinois.  I've trade the life of the midwestener to return to the southern arena I grew up in.  Nashville, TN is not where I grew up, but it is only an hour away from my parents' house.  In a way, it is sorta like returning home.

I started work for the Department of Art at Vanderbilt University and I can't believe my job is to help keep the department running.  It's crazy!
