I started this series of hair and braid paintings in the summer of 2008 for a group show that I was in called: Inspiration: Paterson at the Passaic County Community College Art Galleries in November–December 2008. These acrylic on paper hair and braid patterns are based on photos I have taken of students and strangers I have come across in Paterson, New Jersey where I have worked for the past 9 years.
