Heritage

Heritage is an illustrative dialogue with my family's disappearing Polish roots. The project investigate the larger phenomena of immigration identity and cultural assimilation through my own family's stories and traditions. Each illustration is informed by interviews with my mother, visits to local Polish-American communities, and research on Polish art and culture. The collage technique references the aesthetic of Wycinanki, or Polish folk art paper-cutting, and also conveys the action of piecing together multiple worlds. 

Soon to be developed into a picture book.
