‘you were here’ series



These pieces are all from my mixed media series You Were Here. I’m trying to be more eco-conscious, so instead of buying fresh new white canvases, I’ve been searching through thrift shops for old ‘Bob Ross-esque’ landscapes to insert my childhood photos into. I’ve been trying, through all sorts of mediums and imagery, to convey a sense of nostalgia and childhood memories… and I think, with this series, that I’m finally there. What I do know for sure is that I haven’t enjoyed making art this much, well, ever… so that alone is a victory. My favourite piece is the girl scout, complete with God’s Eye embroidery… a must-have craft at every girl scout camp-out.

*lots more to come in this series… i’ll post them as soon as they’re finished.

    I did a pair of “you are here” trying to get the same feeling about my kids’ childhoods as they are happening, trying to stay present and be nostalgic at the same time…and not worry so much. Just enjoy all those little moments that feel so familiar from my own childhood, wrapped up in watching my kids grow and my husband be their dad, not my dad…i’m the mom now! yikes. Hope you don’t mind if I share.
    I love your work! It feels very close to my childhood too.
