The Stories We Tell 


This most recent body of work is inspired by motherhood, infancy and Matthew Wong’s posthumous show Blue View at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Familiar with the lonely, quiet nights that Matthew Wong was depicting in his blue paintings, my series The Stories We Tell explores the opposing emotions of motherhood with a palette deep blues and pastel hues. I wanted to depict this transformative time of sleeplessness where the days blended into the nights and my deep love for my small children, The  Stories We Tell  expresses complicated feelings about motherhood where words cannot.


Created during my residency with Art Souterrain in Montreal, there was much experimentation in creating these works and the paintings all include tufted shapes, hand embroidery and custom-designed cardstock.
