This breastmilk print is a spin off of my Liquid Gold series. Breastmilk has been nicknamed Liquid Gold for it’s life giving & healing properties. This print is a celebrating of women’s bodies.
After college I almost became a doula.
What I learned of pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding has made its way into my work. Learning of women who birthed each others’ babies in the 1970s on a hippie commune in Tennessee sent me down a path of discovery. Learning how the nordic countries do birth has made me passionate about advocating for mother-centered birth in the U.S. rather than industry-focused births. Hearing stories of women being shamed for breastfeeding in public has made normalized public breastfeeding important to me. This has been my outward exploration as an artist.
The female body is a constant inspiration.
The women in my life are a constant inspiration.
