A series of paintings dealing with the question: 'where do I come from?' What is the impact of nature and nurture on the formation of the self? How did 'I' come to be the person I currently am? The paintings draw from the different places I have lived as well as my cultural heritage. I wanted to incorporate medieval alchemy iconography, and also to arrange the composition around the idea of tarot card symbolism, as well as symbolism unique to the idea each piece is working with and the places they are drawing on.
