Often a hyperawareness within me detects something elusive that could happen to my children, or me —however protected I imagine us to be. In Raising Goosebumps, I have found a way forward through the fears and vulnerabilities of motherhood. For me, the creative process serves to offset the heartache I feel witnessing my children's growing pains and the frustrations they struggle to overcome. This discomfort sparks my visual fascination. Within the images, I am transported to an alternate world where I can face the fragility more bravely. Seeing beauty through the camera's lens, I experience the kind of awe and wonder that raises goosebumps on my skin. Through all this, I am able to go deeper into myself to find new ways of navigating our bumpy days.
