My work is driven by personal photographs and an interest in ideas around impermanence and infinity. This piece was painted from photographs I took during the women's march in Austin, Texas. I seek to explore the identity of the many people finding their voice in a climate which is so divisive. I am interested in infinite ways of seeing, understanding, expressing; I'm interested in the grey lines.
