"This piece was done over a few months as I completed a heuristic research project for my grad class ‘Foundations in Human Science Research’. I was exploring my process as I unearthed some of the feminine archetypes I had been repressing for many years. I painted on a piece of masonite for one and a half hours, once a week for three months. What was left was a vortex which I like to think I held around myself for protection during the rough times."
