Book Series

Necessary Narratives is a book series project that focuses on social issues. Each painting serves as an advertisement for its related children’s book. All books are written at a first grade reading level. “Clara the Cat” tells the story of a cat with anxiety. “Ruby the Red Bird” talks about body image issues. “Tad the Lizard” discusses the idea of gender and a lizard’s triumph against the binary. It was the subject of a recent solo exhibition and photos of the paintings created for that exhibition can be seen below! Books are available for online purchase at http://www.blurb.com/user/store/mgain
