My work weaves together drawings and objects to communicate key themes of faith/ hope, grief/ loss, and family/the home. These themes, as well as the drawings and items, have personal relevance to me. However, rather than conveying specific details, I seek to cause the viewer to consider how these themes are part of their own experiences.
Over the past century, use of religious and spiritual words has declined in the English-speaking world. This is due to many people becoming less comfortable to hold conversations about faith. Grief and loss are also commonly found difficult to discuss. My aim is not to confront the viewer, but instead to subtly invite them to consider these topics in a context that is familiar; the home.
In my drawings, I have searched to find combinations of familial items and segments of writing that hold narrative power. I have then applied the same process of composition to items within the room, balancing interactions between drawings, pages of books and notes written by family members to create an installation.
