In the following document, I discuss the body of artwork I completed for my Masters of Fine Arts degree at Rochester Institute of Technology. The thesis work as presented, explores visual metaphors that relate to memories and emotions associated with past relationships. This autobiographical memoir visually illustrates loneliness, heartache, and nostalgia. Through installations of abstract nontraditional quilting and printmaking, I have depicted visual representations derived from my own experiences and universal ideas about relationships.
