I am excited to be working on two major projects right now both of which stem from the graduate work that I completed at UofA. I am currently finishing a series of many small-scale prints that examine childhood objects as well as adult collections that will be all be shown at Martha Street Studio in January. I am also working on a series of prints that depict the rooms inside a doll house. These will be large-scale and chine-colled to walls, hopefully to create an immersive viewing experience.
