My most recent work was inspired by my (first) pregnancy. *Please note: I am still pregnant as I write this on my due date, September 10th!

“Life Lines”

This series illustrates three significant milestones during each trimester. The first image repeats three pregnancy tests, one of which indicates a positive. This positive test marked the beginning of the pregnancy journey.

The second image is a replication of the ultrasound photo from my 20-week appointment, aka the anatomy scan. Though it is not seen in the image, the most fascinating aspect of the scan was seeing the four chambers of the heart! I was blown away. This ultrasound was the only one that actually resembled a baby (previous images looked like a blob and a dinosaur).

The third image in the series represents stretch marks and Linea Nigra. I was a little disappointed at first to see stretch marks forming on my abdomen on either side just below my bellybutton. However, I have grown to appreciate them as a rite of passage into motherhood.


“Innate Code”

This drawing illustrates the beauty and intricacy of creating a human being. I included a repetition of symbols in abstraction that reminded me of the process.

During the 2018-2019 school year, I began to do weekly drawings for students based on their suggestions (examples shown below). Click on individual images to see larger versions. Scroll down for other artworks.
