Tracing Transformations

The work in this exhibition is a series investigating key parts of my life and the ways that some of my foundational experiences have provided the base of who I am and constantly grown and changed as I and my life have transformed. Subjects I reflected on as I created this work include: religion/spirituality, art/creativity, pain/learning/growth, planting gardens, family, reading, justice work, love, and nature.
