At the beginning of 2020, I became enamored with ribbon forms. I have always found ribbons satisfying to draw since I was young, and they show up in my work early on. But recently I have learned that their forms can communicate emotions. These pieces were created at the onset of the pandemic when I was focusing on feelings and emotions that relate to the body, like arousal, tenderness, fullness, and protection. I use form to evoke feeling, and color to evoke temperature. I use gradients and soft textures for a soothing effect. These pieces are about exploring the emotions related to our bodies, and being soothed in those emotions rather than feeling shame that they exist.
