When I became a mother to Anita in 2019 I began to turn the camera on myself in a way that I hadn’t explored before. After Anita was born I had a Multiple Sclerosis flare that impacted the strength and motor control of my upper body. At that time I began making pictures to see the two of us more clearly beyond the physical and emotional challenges of those days of caretaking. The process of making self-portraiture has continued beyond that difficult period and become a nearly daily practice that includes tableaus with my mother, my partner, and myself alone.
