great expectations is a series of handmade doll sculptures, paper dolls and illustrations. They are inspired by letters written to my grandmother when she arrived in New York from Jamaica in the early part of the 20th century. Whether built into the figures, or more abstractly referenced, these letters from my great-grandmother and other ancestors are central and express their excitement, concerns, caution, but ultimately their hope for her success in the new world.
