I'm a mixed media artist with a background in photography. I was raised in Utah, where I earned my BFA from Weber State University. I now live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and four children. I'm earning my Master’s degree at Pratt Institute.
Through images of my children I speak about being a mother. I photograph them with the closeness and affection of one who knows them and is curious about them. Within the gestures and formal elements, I see myself. And I’m often prompted to express my point of view further through digital or physical interventions. I sometimes cut, paint, layer, and sew into the printed photograph. The repetition in my imagery and processes speak to the recurring tasks, conversations, and frustrations of caring for my four children. Each step allows me to process feelings about motherhood and myself.
