Artist Statement

Follow the life of Lela in her journey of mid-life self discovery. 'We have all met Lela's in our lives. She is a woman immersed in a path of self exploration, intent and focused so much upon herself that she loses her connection to others.', writes Michael Townsend in " Emigrants" the magazine the Lela series first appeared. 'I have had several Lela's in my life - one as fearsome friend, one in a smash up love affair and a couple who were just shadows floating through some shared experiences. The sketches here are based upon those Lela's and others .'
