A House Full of Ghosts

I grew up in a house full of ghosts.

My thesis is an exploration of childhood from the perspective of both myself and my sister, who would see ghosts that I could not.

A collection of 6 pieces, each one explores life through traditional embroidered and collaged mediums that emulate the feeling of comfort and familiarity of the home. Just beneath the surface of that comfort sits a narrative about a girl who struggles to comprehend the frightening things she is seeing, and her sister who is afraid to be normal in a house full of ghosts.

Artist Statement:

My work as a whole focuses on the study of children's illustration in a variety of mediums.

Through each piece I strive to connect with my own childhood, and use that as inspiration to create works of art that children today can relate to. I find inspiration through other modern illustrators in the children's literature community, particularly those that work in collage.
