Using a variety of approaches, Dellosso often melds her own image to artists from the past, creating self-portraits that transcend time while conveying the inspiring stories of historical women. Also included is work from the artist’s most recent series, Homage Ode, which takes the form of exquisite illuminated manuscripts with poetry inspired by select historical artists.
