Artist Statement

Guilt. Selfishness. Anxiety. Anger. Vulnerability. Numb. Detached.   

My current work explores the conflicts that arise for women in a society with expectations of motherhood.    
The photographic images point to the often-invisible vulnerability during pregnancy and after.  The images address the conflicts relating to the connectedness of body, spouse, and self. 
The sculptural elements offer a visual representation of the struggles and ever-changing mindset of women that do not meet the societal expectations of desiring motherhood.
