My work indexes traces of the feminine in material culture. I examine aspects of femininity often considered sentimental, kitschy, suburban or banal, and in so doing ask what it might mean to call something a "femmy thing." While these aspects are partly celebrated, my work underscores the melancholic darkness that remains. Working primarily in graphite on paper, I aim to give such cultural detritus a kind of solidity and permanancy that it lacks as source material. ♀♀♀ Artist ☆*✲゚*。(((´♡‿♡`+)))。*゚✲*☆⁎⁙꒰⋓(༶∙ .̌ ∙༶ૢ)⋓꒱⁕⁛⁎⁙꒰⋓(༶∙ .̌ ∙༶ૢ)⋓꒱⁕⁛ ☆*✲゚*。(((´♡‿♡`+)))。*゚⋓꒱⁕⁛ ☆*✲゚*。..//// b.1984 Corpus Christi, Texas ///////////////////////////////////////////////.. 2011 Master of Fine Arts - The School of the Art Institute of Chicago ///////

There are many that I know and they know it. They are all of them repeating and I hear it. I love it and I tell it. I love it and now I will write it. This is now a history of my love of it. I hear it and I love it and I write it. They repeat it. They live it and I see it and I hear it. They live it and I hear it and I see it and I love it and now and always I will write it. There are many kinds of men and women and I know it. They repeat it and I hear it and I love it. This is now a history of the way they do it. This is now a history of the way I love it. —-Gertrude Stein, The Making of Americans, 1934
