She creates, We create
Senior Seminar 2021
Artist Statement – In my work I combine graphic design with femnist theory ,utilizing curriculum, illustration and art history to create an alternative canon. My work is informed by my ongoing research into inequity in the art world and art history texts, striving to create more inclusivity through education. I deploy a K-12 art education curriculum to create a narrative that revolves around the great women artist. By reassessing the canon in a way that includes women as well as other marginalised artists ,thus bring them to the forefront of art history. My work changes the way art history has been written and taught, working to inspire younger generations to become great women artists.
