This was a project I began in early 2015 when I was in a relationship that was really wonderful, but also stressful, complicated, and difficult.
Most relationships are probably the same way.
But I was having a hard time dealing with it, so I began to draw, write, rant my feelings on paper. And then, because I wanted no one to see, I covered it all in glitter.
You can read more about this project here and here.

Most of these paintings are from my senior thesis show, GLITTER IS MY FAVORITE COLOR.
This body of work, which still influences everything I make today, is about the ways we view Fine Art versus they way we view arts and crafts, fashion, and other forms of art that tend to be regarded as feminine.
