Over time stories form with each given strand of hair we grow. I began to concentrate on their shapes and textures, inside these shapes were a nest of untold stories. In the past year I have been experimenting with sculptures and paintings using hair as a brush, as a medium and as substrate. There is pain and trauma carried in hair that I feel needs to be shown. It’s a way for me to see beauty in a challenge, recreate the pain in my own form.
