My second major, Printmaking, provided an opportunity to iterate and truly digest the process of making. Prints were built incrementally, and with each pull, the final piece would materialize. Combining process with narrative, I molded a personal thesis show that challenged dated and traumatizing thinking while providing hope for a more inclusive future.
In this year-long project, I was tasked with taking a culturally-charged fabric from Australia and molding it into human form. The fabric's pattern featured a shell often collected while fishing and fashioned into jewelry. Slippery silk, the fabric was challenging but once finished left me with a great sense of accomplishment.
