          As an intersectional feminist, my work explores visual language associated with women’s overlapping identities in tandem with the conventional roles placed upon them. In examining how this effects our lives as individuals and as a collective in society, my work depicts and challenges cultural stereotypes of womanhood while utilizing its old-aged feminine iconography.

          Intricate floral patterning and ornate plants are used as a device to bind varied imagery together. The complex interconnected nature of women is referenced and celebrated through intricate patterning and mixed materials. Mediums like fabric and sewing materials along with imagery such as flowers and domestic items project conventional ideas of womanhood to the viewer in conjunction with elements of irregularity. By using associated feminine mediums and imagery, I re-present the social norms of womanhood to discuss and transform how we perceive it in our contemporary culture.
