The Unknown Land

As my husband and I struggled to pay our bills, find community and understand college, I spent many late nights alone while my husband worked the evening shift delivering pizza. I wandered the city, sat at a table in coffee shops, lonely and hoping to be comforted by other people buzzing around me. I set out to make a constellation of these works, each lonely tiny painting its own star in a larger galaxy. That loneliness goes beyond my own experience, I feel that it is rather a universal experience. I wanted the viewer to feel seen and heard when they recognized the loneliness in them.
