This piece was created of an acquaintance of mine who was just emerging from a traumatic past and beginning to tell her story. I used the introverted brown that the blue morpho butterfly uses for camouflage as well as the blue color it uses when its wings are open to create this portrait.

I created this piece when living at home for the first few months of the pandemic. The woman has three heads in this work displaying the burden that having multiple tasks and jobs in the home creates for mothers.

As one of my sweetest paintings, this piece reflects motherhood as a woman getting her seed child to be in the right environment to grow. In the image, she is pressing a seed into the child, as light glows in from the window.

This work is of a woman literally burning a candle at two ends. When I entered back into the workforce, I had a baby at home. This piece tries to encapsulate the multifaceted job of being a working mother.

In this piece I was thinking of the cyclical tasks that I have in my home and placed a woman in the position of walking on a balance beam in the center being confronted by three animals hidden in the fabric. I recycled and collaged older textiles that I have collected over the years to piece together this portrait.
