Description: Weeks after seeing a sonogram of my baby's healthy heartbeat, I experienced a miscarriage. I struggled with the loss for a long time and felt isolated by the experience. It wasn't until later that I learned how common miscarriage is and that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage.

Artist Statement

My current body of work explores the unspoken and taboo topics connected to miscarriage, pregnancy, and the transformative female form. By using traditional fiber techniques, stereotypically associated with women, I hope to create more honest conversations through approachable art.
