In my body of work, The Idea Of You, I asked women from differing backgrounds to respond to the question “In a relationship you’ve had, no matter how brief or drawn out, how did the idea of you that someone else had differ from the reality – and vice versa. I received very intimate responses all of which I can relate to. I took their stories as well as a few of my own and turned the words into art. With this work, I am sitting at the intersection of feminine idealism and a personal truth. The message behind my work is based on the façade that often canvases a relationship. It’s not until the walls come down that one can be their true self and sometimes that scares the other person away.
