I am fortunate to reside in the very place where my family's journey began. I've traveled to the locations that hold significance in my family's history. Locations where they resided, played, attended school, experienced heartbreak, and simply existed. Upon arrival, I eagerly scour the surroundings for any remnants that might have coexisted with my ancestors. Perhaps a river rock that my grandmother skipped across the river. A path once traveled by Mary, one of my great-great-grandmothers; or an iris patch lovingly tended to by my Great Granny Roberts. In these moments, my purpose is to discover forgotten knowledge or strength that they may have left behind. Through art, I revive forgotten wisdom and lost connections using foraged materials, found objects, historical processes and photographs. Being in the lands that are full of history, and using historical processes creates a connection to the people that have came before me. These lost connections and processes are brought to light and live on within these works of art.
