Homage to my Sisters

Homage to my Sisters made in response to women sharing their stories about deciding to terminate a pregnancy.

Women involved with the project ranged from 18 to 40 years old. Each story shed light on the complexity of the decision and the emotional challenges faced, often silently and alone.

Me and My Sister

The Arrival Present
“Arriving in England with no friends, little support and finding out I was pregnant was my welcome present from England.” Digital Drawing, 2017

Juggling Balloons
“The coil predicts 1% chance of becoming pregnant. Continual tiredness confirmed that 1% possibility.” Digital Drawing, 2017

Handle with Care
