Making My Way to the Shore explores my life as a woman, without children, at the end of my fertile years. The window to my childbearing years rapidly closing gave me a newfound urgency to examine the cyclical nature of life and my family lineage, especially my maternal line. As my dream of motherhood turned into a reality of infertility, anxiety and pressure mounted every month that I aged and was unable to conceive. If I remain childless, I wonder if the void of missing out on the intricate experience of being a mother can somehow be tempered. Through a mix of landscapes, archival family photos, and my present day life, I am exploring my psychological landscape, place within my family, aging and time.
