These drawings came out of a desire to connect my artwork to the fiddle, an instrument I began playing at the age of thirteen. I had already drawn one or two fiddles, filled them with watercolors, & was quickly uninterested in recreating the same detailed image over & over. At the time I was studying the work of illustrator Teagan White, & I remembered seeing her braided typography, so I thought to test out making a fiddle of braids. The braid proved to be more difficult to draw than I had anticipated, however, & I had to work a few out in my sketchbook before I felt ready to commit one to a fiddle. When the fiddle was drawn, I liked it enough. Still, I knew I could do better, so I drew a second one. That one came out alright, too, but.

I started looking up braids on Pinterest. What a rabbit hole that became. Each image of a woman fanning her hair out, turning her head so only her profile was visible, or maybe a sliver of her cheek peeking from behind her tangle of flowing braids & folds of pinned hair put me in deeper touch with how I see myself as a women. What fun it then became to explore a multitude of braids & bridal up-dos & turn them into fiddles. I added flowers & let the salty wind of the sea give them rough curls.

I'd love to move on to a series of "portraits," putting into fiddles the braided & pinned hair of my friends & family, & give them more personal names than "Hairy Fiddle 3," like "Orlean" or "Eleanor's Revenge."
