For memory retrieval, pattern completion refers to a crucial process that restores memories from partial or degraded cues. Neurocognitive aging models suggest that the aged memory system is biased toward pattern completion, resulting in a behavioral preference for retrieval over encoding of memories. I use this process in my work to expose ugly truths about my life experiences within the patriarchal system of mid-century America, and to reclaim those unhappy personal associations with the agency of an adult woman.

Environmental Anxieties
In this body of work, I use predatory relationships of animals, birds, and insects to explore personal themes of vulnerability. The work is also a comment on the real dangers to our natural word; climate change, pollution, and habitat loss.
