Portfolios > (micro)chimera

Inspired by the personal journey of witnessing a child grow from birth through childhood, the imagery in the series (micro)chimera utilizes photographs of an evolving body and drawings by my daughter, from her first mark-making to the sophisticated and complex imagery from school art classes. The self-portraits seek to document the experiences of two individuals who are physically tied to one another. Historical processes associated with science, observation, and craft are incorporated in these images to reinforce the significance of woman as creator, family historian, and nurturer.
