Working in painting, printmaking, collage, and digital media, I create two-dimensional, mixed-media works to better understand the relationships between myself and my maternal family. I draw upon personal and familial experiences from family photographs, oral histories, and my own memory to construct multi-layered compositions that consist of portraits and interior subject matter. Each of my works portrays and celebrates the lives and personalities of those who are depicted through color, material, and individual-specific patterns. Meanwhile, themes of poignancy and beauty are also emphasized throughout my work, highlighting loss while also conveying the joyous times we spent together.
