My eldest daughter turned eleven today, marking not only the first decade of her life, but a full decade of me as a parent. As I assembled these small frames today it prompted me to think about the framework of my life, like a series of self portraits spanning back to my own beginning. Me as a daughter, a student, a sister, an artist, a wife, a mother... The frames overlap, often contain one another, and even sometimes conflict with each other. My daughter is just beginning to determine and diversify her identity, her own framework.
