Portfolio > Self-Portraits as Ancestral Karma

Never cut what you can untie. -Robert Frost

Self-Portraits as Ancestral Karma is an investigation into how being a part of a family has affected me. These drawings are an exploration of my own personal narrative through the eyes of 'family'. What has come before me has definitely effected me, like it or not. Self-portraits as Ancestral Karma carry an awareness that 'family' does not always have to be the way it is. This body of work is meant to be entwined with Family Portraits, like two sides of the same coin.
