Artist Statement for How to Draw a Perfect Circle

I am currently working on a series about perfection and control, which have ruled my life. I have been the quintessential  “good girl” - good grades, good hair, good manners. Perfection and control have even touched me through anorexia.

How to Draw a Perfect Circle is my visual representation of perfection and control and a way to work through why it has such a hold on my life but also commenting on the ridiculousness of perfection and how underneath the surface what looks perfect usually isn’t.
