The Househeads came to me in a dream and are a recurring motif in my work. They came at a time when I was longing for a sense of place and connection. As a single woman, I was trying to determine what home was outside of a traditional family structure. The Househeads became my fictional family.
My goal for Nomadic Dreamer is for people to remember themselves. I hope that this artwork enables viewers to imagine the ways their personal narratives might connect with those of others.
