About

Feminist + Radical Miscarriage Art

I create queer feminist and miscarriage art. Since my radical miscarriage at 10 weeks in April of 2014, I've returned to my painting roots as a personal art therapy with watercolors and pen drawings. These often depict my Little Lentil Landscapes (underwater alien other-world landscapes) along with My Animal, Grieving, Hairy, Alien Women and Warrior Mothers. After birthing my child, Vee, in July 2015 in a natural home water birth, my work has incorporated the struggles of parenthood, breastfeeding and nurturing the mother. Besides my own emotional survival, my art strives to honor womyn and contribute to a culture of empathy, vulnerability and courage.

A major focus of my work explores the concept of the Venus of Willendorf, a small statue carved during the Paleolithic Period, roughly 28,000-25,000 BCE. One of multiple similar forms of art discovered around the earth, it's likely one of the first sculptures ever created by humans and, ironically, predates the concept of Venus by millennia. I ask myself a lot of questions about her identity as I journey into and accept my own changing body's landscape and my body as an ecosystem. Was she a fertility goddess? Was she floating in water? Was she an elder? Was this a self portrait? To me, she represents an ancient time in our history on this planet when human beings revered the feminine, particularly mothers and female elders, as a natural, daily impulse.
