The interplay of feminism and nature is the focus of my work. I create visual narratives inspired by growing up caught between a collapsing conservative steel town and the rural escapism of my grandparents’ farm in the coal mountains of central PA. The techniques I employ are largely self-developed and include layering distressed drawings, paint, and original photography. All my work has a tactile, handmade feel, where much of the construction process remains visible in the final image.
