Through The Birth of Housework I explored my experience of childbirth, breastfeeding and child rearing. As is the case in much of my work, the painting support contributes to content. In this case, the work is painted on either commercial or handmade ironing board covers and mounted on ironing boards, in multiples of three or five.

The images are installation views at several venues including Delta Axis, Memphis TN (curated by Allen Frame),  Tate Gallery at the University of Georgia, and Space One Eleven, Birmingham AL.
