Doña is a response to a longing for home and how I fit in my familys maternal line. This woodblock print features a bata (Spanish, [housedress in English]) which is traditionally worn by Latinas while doing housework. This garment is a common and powerful symbol for myself and many others of Latine heritage. I had vivid memories of my grandmothers and great-grandmothers wearing them. I am working on a series of mixed media paintings exploring this symbolism to discuss familial support and comfort, female connections and biology, and cultures within culture.
