The way an object is worn can tell you 
about where it came from and the
person who used it. Unlike that of
objects, a human’s story of endurance
isn’t always easily seen. Throughout
my life I have become close friends
with personal loss and independence.
I admire perseverance and I am
interested in the traumas humans choose
to keep secret from the world. Through
objects that have already lived, I
explore experiences of my own I have
previously kept hidden, as well as the
methods employed to cope with them.
