“Choreographing My Past is project about the complexity of family dynamics.  After living on my own for over a decade, I returned to live in my childhood home only to discover a family that remembers the girl I once was, but refuses to accept the woman I’ve become. This experience forced me to revisit my past and reevaluate my role with in my family.

The images in this series reflect feelings of both metaphoric and literal isolation. Although I occupy this space physically, I experience a sense of detachment and alienation. I literally climb, crawl and step through different rooms to mentally escape and maintain my sanity. In the end, I accept the struggle, to find love and acceptance in this space with my extended family.”
