A visual research project to collect imagery of local Muslim women surfing for a new series of mixed media drawings on recycled wood.

In preparation for a new series of large scale mixed media figure drawings on the theme of Muslim women in surfing, I will be collecting sketches, photos, video, and audio of local Muslim women participating in my Burkini Surf Visual Research Project. Money raised will enable me collect the visual information that I need to complete three to five approximately 5x5’ drawings on recycled wood, and provide me with the ability to expend the time necessary to build and execute these artworks. With your help I will complete this series of drawings for a solo show in late 2012!
