Tales Once Told

Exhibition: 6.5-6.26.24

Artist Reception: Fri, 6.7 // 5-8pm

My work is a celebration of all of the stories that will continue to live as long as language and
gesture exist. The stories that follow us into adulthood and the stories we have forgotten in mind,
but not heart. As a young girl one of my greatest loves was reading about heroes and underdogs,
villains and monsters. Each one had taught me that I was not alone. I wanted to explore that
feeling again, and bring back to life my love of storytelling.
