I created this suite of prints at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in 2003 as a guest artist. I could not have made such a beautiful series with out the proofing and edition printing by the Master Printer Cole Rogers and Assistant Printer Mia Keeler, Studio Manager Tyler Starr, and interns Jennifer Wolcott and Kari Klocke.
My artistic muse, the fairy tale, comes into play here in this work. The title of the story, The Three Questions, by Leo Tolstoy, struck me as so concise. If there were only three questions what would they be? The three questions were the very questions I ask my self every day, especially pertaining to my life’s duty.
What should I do? When should I do it? With whom should I do it with?
I altered Leo Tolstoy’s fairy tale, The Three Questions, simply by changing the male protagonist to a female just so I could see my gender setting out on foot to find the truth despite threat of death.
