This series is a statement of my faith, through self-portraiture. I wanted to capture the many stages of my faith, and how it fluctuates from security to loneliness, vise versa. The lace is the main subject in the series representing peace and delicacy, and the innocence of belonging to Christ. The lace covering my body is to show the security I find being a Christian, like a chrysalis is security for a growing butterfly. The lace that is thrown across the floor and along other objects represents letting go of worldly things and surrendering to the creator, as well as growth in my faith.
