We tend to obscure our true selves and the circumstances we are going through by masking our emotions. The manifestation of emotional disturbances such as stress, depression, or anxiety resides in most people and can overtake our thoughts. I reflect upon and investigate the concealment of these internal struggles in relation to how we present ourselves outwardly through my forms and surface design.

In developing my artwork, I have gathered inspiration from tumors and the intestinal-like structures of the human body to discuss inner turmoil. This form is the basis for my illustrations, in which the physical act of stitching is a means to connect with the repairing of oneself and recurring psychological wounds. Each section illustrates a narrative referencing my own trauma and the imbalance that it constructs. By building and illustrating these objects, I can work through my own conflicts while also creating a space to which others can relate.
