Searching, collecting (2021-ongoing)

I became a mother in February 2020, right before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and the first lockdowns began in the US. Being in isolation for so long with a baby-turned-toddler forced me to spend a lot of time looking down, rather than out at the world around me. This ongoing series of graphite self-point-of-view drawings with collaged elements reflects a shift in my work that came from that experience. The drawings express the search for hope during a difficult time.
