From what was originally intended just as a class project thrown together overnight were the pieces that formed into my first collage series, Mapping. A year later, I still continued to use the same technique of cut-up magazines, paste and nocturnal inspiration to create work for my BFA senior thesis exhibition at the University of Montana.

The series, Comfort, uses cold, desolate landscapes paired with wandering figures and things like floating rocks and over-sized feathers. These empty, wild spaces are a metaphor for the untraveled places and new territory we find ourselves in while exploring life, and how we react to our vulnerability.
