Maternal Portrait

This video follows my maternal genealogical line, one rarely followed because women traditionally take the name of their husband, making it more difficult to find information down this side of history.
The video follows a timeline, from both sides of my family. It follows my mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers. I dressed up as these women, and provided any information I could find about their lives at the age of 20, the same age I am today.

I loved this project, it made me feel very connected to all these women who came before me and paved my path. I encourage everyone to ask their mothers and grandmothers about their maternal family tree, don’t forget the ‘her-story’!

Keychains for Smiles

Andrea McCallum

I went through my craft and art supply totes and found some shrink sheets and keychains that would both be great for artist multiples! I wanted to make multiples with text that would make people smile if I were to give them out or leave them for people to find.

My original idea for this was a screen printed bookmark printed in thicker lettering
in rainbow ombre or in bright colours.
