Sister Ships is a series of mixed media paintings based on the irrevocable choices we all make in our lives, and the consideration of what our lives may have looked like had we made a different choice. In an article written for The Rumpus, Cheryl Strayed speaks of these “sister lives,” providing clarity for me in a time when I was struggling with which path to take in my life. The haunting and beautiful image of a ghost ship passing in the night stuck with me and emerged, seemingly out of nowhere (as ghost ships are wont to do), in this body of work.
