embroidery on fabric, 2020
This is a self-portrait, and the ‘neurons’ within my own head that I title ‘Sprites.’ The sprites represent the issues I have experienced throughout the past few years dealing with unmanaged bipolar disorder. Bringing myself to a fantasy and colorful world through my artistic practice is something that distracts me from the whirring thoughts in my head and helps me cope.
I picture them as friends I bring along with me that help distract me by reinstigiating positive messages and thoughts, as well as helping me do daily tasks and function.
