Creating a work that is both biographical and autobiographical. The series depicts themes of addiction, repitition, labor, identity, and self confidence.

RUMMAGING THROUGH VOWELS
The series Rummaging Through Vowels is a collection of eleven self published riso prints. The range of subject matter chosen within each compositions is determined by words starting with a long or short vowel sound. The project brief created strict parameters to work from forcing new creative avenues for exploration and problem solving. The series’ look is heavily inspired by alphabet flash cards and oracle cards. While the fixation on vowels comes from the artists own childhood challenges with sounding out words, pronunciation, and reading during elementary school.
