For the past 15 years my work has revolved around the ability to create art in between my responsibilities as a mother and caregiver.
Currently I’m using Trader Joe’s Bags as my medium to create portraits. I gather and collect grocery bags to help piece them together. Each bag has a story. They have been used to feed and care for people or recycled for other projects. Trader Joe’s bags are a constant material in domestic life.
Every portrait leads to the next, I started with MLK, women in media, then I did my daughter’s portraits. During the election I created Hillary Clinton. My latest project was done at ArtShare LA, titled Portland Max, it’s a homage to the victims of racism in the USA.
I want to take this series as far as it can go, and continue to explore images using collage with everyday materials that I gather from people.
