Work, Reproduce, Play, Love. My work is concerned with the social constructs of being a woman. Reacting to our influences, women have many guises brought out to cover multitudes of situations and encounters, these thread throughout cultures, stereotypes, and myths. Working with the full moon cycles I have been documenting gestures to interpret these symbiotic characters. Admired or avoided by the world, they are there to be toyed with and explored.
