The Girlie Werewolf Project represents a creative exploration of the female werewolf as she has been represented throughout history. For close to three decades, the largely forgotten or under-represented narratives of female otherness and lycanthropy have served as the subjects of a series of elaborate reduction linocut portraits and other printmaking-informed works. In 2014, I completed my practice-led PhD project, The Girlie Werewolf Hall of Fame: historical and contemporary figurations of the female lycanthrope. While, in recent years, I have been moving more and more towards an autoethnographic exploration of my Australian-Lithuanian cultural identity and environmentally sustainable art practices, there will always be a soft spot in my heart for my lycanthropic ladies of the linocut. I welcome you to become acquainted with some of them below.
