About The Work
Becoming A Better Sinner series is about the structures we put in place to try to make us feel right
or belong that result in a residue of guilt from self-betrayal. It’s about confronting dogma that
doesn’t fit and owning your authentic self. As a young girl I mostly listened to my own voice
over anyone else’s. I still felt guilty, but did it anyway. I remember the look on my mother’s
face when I came home with fuchsia hair. She said to me, “Where’s my little girl?” Yep, I felt
like a sinner. So these days, I’m working on embracing the “Sinner” voice. I’m playing with the
meaning of the word and finding out what it means to me, a word with so much charge and
button-pushing in our world. I find that what others may call a sin isn’t really what I would
call a sin. However I invite you to find your own meaning in the work.
Who knows, you may just want to become a better sinner as well.
