Much of my work starts with an inner dialogue about how people in my past have
shaped my current self-image. The ideas for my pieces come from how I see women in my society and are frequently influenced by women who have been poignant in my life. I am often interpreting a personal memory, a story from my family’s oral tradition or simply making a commentary on an issue that relates to my life at any given point. My work has an underlying influence of the culture of family in Southern Ohio and the role of the female within that society. -Adrian Blackstock
