“Wallflower Portraits”

McCutcheon’s formal training began in the late 60s at Fisk University where she studied under renowned painter David Driscoll and sculptor Martin Puryear. She later studied collage with Jonathan Talbot and had conversations with Benny Andrews, who were both a great inspiration.

McCutcheon has always been drawn to portraits from any era. “…at first glance, one would not immediately describe my “Wallflower Portrait” series as such. However, they are my interpretation of portraits with a twist and a dash of teenage recollections of trying to become invisible by pretending to blend into my surroundings – I was and at times still am the proverbial “wallflower”.
