I have been told that my work often appears as a memory. I believe this effect stems from the energy imbued in my process: I enter into a place of remembering whenever I am making. While not everything comes directly from my experiences, I am evoking history in everything I do, whether that be personal history, cultural history, or art history. Many of my works, for instance, use anonymous, womanly bodies to represent ancestral history. Others use specific references to family members or figures from art history to unearth and solidify connections.
My body belongs to a lineage of women who have questioned the abuse of our individual and collective bodies, seeking new forms of healing and empowerment through the arts.
