SHOW ARTIST STATEMENT~

Fish Scales and Feather Tales is a series of works blending classic fairy tales with personal narrative in a series of colorful ink and gouache illustrations. Each work draws from my two favorite folk tales: The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and Jorinda and Joringel by the Brothers Grimm. Using imagery from these works as a foil, I seek to explore moments of my own history involving personal growth and transformation, unrequited love, and disconnection from family.
