"forget me", tempera, oil pastel, charcoal, gesso, pipe cleaner, beads, sweater accents, pony doll, on canvas (2022) 22 1/2" x 28"

forget me is a representation of a small segment of my warped mind. the reflective sequins were acquired from my first aeropostale sweater, which i had worn during a period of abuse. i juxtopose violent marks with soft feminine colors, replicas of childhood objects such as the pony and beaded costume necklace that i cut with a knife, and conflicting written thought regarding forgiveness and self love.
