The figures seen within my work serve as the depiction of a spiritual connection between guardians and descendants. Touch and protection play a large role in my work as guardians are often extending their embrace to their lineage in the midst of overcoming trauma and/or mental illness. This meeting of ancestry occurs within an unconscious realm in which gender is non-binary—the guardians are a unique entity, as well as a reflection of their descendants. They are imperfect and heavily flawed, but their flaws also serve as their strength and power.
