The Red Lipstick Series

When I was a little girl I was captivated when I saw my mom apply her red lipstick. I stopped everything to watch her. I wanted to wear the red lipstick so badly. I wanted to run the lipstick tube over my lips, and then rub my lips together to get the application perfect like she did.

I remember asking my mom often if she would let me wear it. On the rare occasion when she said yes, I was thrilled. Wearing the red lipstick was transformational. It turned on my imagination and caused me to pretend I was someone else.

This series is symbolic of my childhood daydreams. It will take people out of their everyday lives and place them into a story of their own invention. It explores fantasy, make believe and imagination.

Yes, the subjects will be wearing red lipstick.
