Documenting the thoughts and processes behind my series of portraits and self-portraits, stitched and painted marks on cloth; one embroiderer’s personal examination of memory, self and relationship with self.

When we observe ourselves, what do we see? Our observations and opinions of ourselves can change and our memories can alter those observations and opinions over time. My observations have been recorded in a way that invites the viewer to take a glimpse inside my life and draw their own conclusions.
