Too Close To Home is a series consisting of 27 drawings. Formally they recall a book or magazine spread. The drawings show scenes from the fictive live of a woman who moves and develops through undefined times and situations: a female coming-of-age story. The recurrent protagonist resembles the artist, as to have a recognisable character throughout the series. Many drawings have text elements, most of which are found quotes from all kind of sources which develop a new completely meaning in the new context alongside the images.
