"I really enjoyed working on this job as the subject was the complex life and thoughts of Sylvia Plath. This illustration was for Smith Alumni Quarterly and it accompanied an excerpt from the editor of a new publication of Plath's personal journals. She writes about the important people in her life including her children and her husband...There are also mentions of many thematic symbols which appear in both her journals and her poems such as rabbits, death, water, and woodpeckers...all of which I incorporated into the painting. I approached the composition loosely and with an abstract mindset. As the piece is really about a reflection of a person's inner thoughts, it seemed appropriate to aim for a timeless, surreal juxtaposition of imagery." 10 x 13.
