A project that is focused on human connections with sentimental objects as they serve the purpose of maintaining part of the past by breaking the boundaries of time through emotional attachment. I used an interview-based research process to collect data from individuals about their experiences and connections with their sentimental objects to produce the book Stories of Things.

"A collection of leaves from the tree in front of my family’s first home in Canada. Individual portraits of my family members are printed on the leaves using a very thin layer of wax over the surface of the leaf then transferring a printed image onto the wax. The portraits and the collected leaves became part of the book Mementoes."
