Historical Context:
"I have always been drawn to the oddities and curiosities that make us different: our possessions and behaviors that really point to who we are as individuals...I like to play with the elements as though I were staging a theatrical production, combining drawing and collaged elements to capture a sense of childish whimsy, and drawing inspiration from nineteenth century theatre...Each vignette reflects some of those things that I find most interesting about the human experience- an old twisted tree, ancient ruins, a dusty rug..." -Christina Ramirez
