Member Chapter: Mid-Atlantic


The series Ella (She in Spanish) examines the subject of identity and the women's experience through self-portraiture and the mother-daughter relationship. Throughout the series, I assume two roles; myself and my mother, and I re-create my mother's experiences as a young woman, mother, and wife. I explore our relationship and how my mother’s experiences and identity affect my own sense of self and idiosyncrasies.
