In my painting and printmaking practice I’m interested in exploring the universally complex feelings surrounding family and growing up. I use patterning, embroidery, and the book form to create intimate and tender works that explore my own deeply personal coming-of age narratives. By pulling from my own experience, my aim is that the viewer is also able to recognize aspects of their own growing up narrative in the work.
Within my practice I often come back to the bed as a space of rest and recovery, but with an uncomfortable undertone of procrastination and boredom. I’m interested in the unglamorous and uncomfortable moments that we have to lean into in order to facilitate change.
