My artwork is inspired by mythology, folklore, and traditional stories. I am interested in the way in which human beings, across nations and time, have sought to explain the world around them through story. My work seeks to explore the female role within these stories and to center and amplify the women within them. With The Seven Ravens I bring focus to the lesser-known story of a young heroine. Here a girl is the center of our tale, and not as the damsel in distress, but as a brave adventurer set out as her family’s savior. The Seven Ravens is an artist book made in an edition of three.
