Faces

Artist statement: Art has helped me give identify to new classmates that I have never seen. I don’t categorize people by their faces anymore, just the way they make me feel. They always feel far away, like they’re behind a veil.

Home

Artist statement:

This image was created early in the pandemic sometime in late March early April. The landscape image was taken at Ivy Creek and the portrait was taken while trying on a homemade mask that my mom had made and mailed to me. Ivy Creek became a retreat, a sanctuary away from our home that was now our place of work, our children's school. Home did not have the comforts it use to. Nature is where I found this comfort. I merged these images to display the contrast of those elements. Home verses the feeling of home.
