The Hidden Mother

by Debra Styer

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.


The Hidden Mother refers to a type of Victorian photo where the mom "stays" in the picture to calm the little child via bad camouflage. I just love these things...they are so creepy.

This little ode to the Hidden Mother was created with watercolor and gouache paints over a graphite drawing.
