Vovó Santinha is a portrait of the artist’s Brazilian grandmother, whom the she would often think of on her commute. The artist would take mental snapshots of passing views as she recollected how vovó ironed her blanket before tucking her in, walked with her to pick wildflowers and treated her to sugar on her pacifier.
