Even though my mom graduated from UCDavis a decade ago with a degree in Fine Art (emphasis in Printmaking, so that’s where I get that from!), she still takes classes every semester at the local community college just to keep up with the circle of local artists.
We visited her in the print lab of Shasta College the other week, where she watercolors every other day, and she showed us some of the new paintings she’s working on.
Her paintings are based off the series of Dick and Jane books. I only got to snap one, but it’s amazing! However, it is NSFW and contains nudity, so if you’re at work (Jillian!) abusing your access to the internet (Christina!), you’ve been forewarned!
Anyway, this new series of hers is based on the idea that “in some families … everyone goes about their daily business while chaos and confusion abound. For [her] it was [her] step father who constantly felt it necessary to demean and humiliate.”
She also has a blog, From the Desk of Debbie, where she chronicles her way through art making. Check out the photos from her series of classic black and white TV shows!
You rock, Mama.
