Revealing Betty is an ongoing study of found objects from my late mother’s archive, placed within vintage album pages to document and delve deeper into her personal journey of recovery. These ubiquitous magnetic sleeves serve as housing for photos, intimate journal entries, pressed flowers, poems and love letters. Putting these private memories on display within such universally used album pages allow my mother's life to become a collage of emotions and experiences. This juxtaposition speaks to ones duality, the external versus the internal and how that balance can become a lifelong struggle.
