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.
