The pandemic had many of us working from home more many of us expanded our minds, bottoms (❁´◡`❁) and skills. I began doodling on my iPad more and saw a woman in one of those doodles. I found myself creating many women and men in regal robes and intricate designs. I decided to call this series, “Nubian.” Nubians are a member of one of the group of dark-skinned peoples that formed a powerful empire between Egypt and Ethiopia from the 6th to the 14th centuries.
I have now created many Nubian sketches on my iPad, then used my laser cutter to score the designs into wood panels. A couple of the creations have been recreated into larger canvas works and both are sold.
