As a senior in college, I was going through a break up. A lot of things were changing about me. I was taking an experimental printmaking and got to really explore some of the new things I was learning about myself.
I must have attempted to print fifty different ideas (whether that be relief printing objects, or using the new things I was doing as the subject of my print making works) before I decided that it was time for a physical change. I ended up essentially cutting all of my hair off and realized how it just spoke this story to me.
It's history was important as was the mark of getting rid of it. I began to use this history to create some stories on paper–permanent marks. I used a form of printmaking to record the marks of this and it printed remarkably delicately and beautifully with strong, yet thin, delicate lines that seemed to evoke different emotions depending on their placement on the paper.
