My Face of Fabric (Series 1-4)

Cotton fabric and makeup, 2016, 10"w x 14"h (each)

As a young female growing up I battled with low self-esteem and confidence. Makeup became a coping mechanism and a way in which I could finally start to accept myself. I am interested in exploring and using a nontraditional medium to communicate notions of femininity. My work is raw and vulnerable; I question and confront the female body through the application of makeup as a sculptural medium. I try to connect personally to the audience, and what they then do is take away acceptance. They accept me as I am, accept my body and accept themselves as they are.
