Portraits. Scenes. Reflections.


12 paintings: expressive portraits and interpretative narratives based on collective storytelling, as part of my Artist Initiative Grant project. These paintings are inspired by interviews with and stories shared by people in Minnesota from different backgrounds, experiences, and cultures. Includes a layered soundscape created from audio recordings.
