"when your little girl
asks you if she's pretty
your heart will drop like a wineglass
on the hardwood floor
part of you will want to say
of course you are, don't ever question it
and the other part
the part that is clawing at
will want to grab her by her shoulders
look straight into the wells of
her eyes until they echo back to you
you do not have to be if you don't want to
it is not your job"
-Caitlyn Siehl in Beauty Sick by Renee Engeln, PhD
Armstrong's work isn't about being pretty. It's about power, grief, and blurring boundaries.
After earning a BA in Sculpture from Brandeis University, Armstrong returned to Texas to complete her MA/MFA in Painting at the University of Dallas in the Spring of 2021. She currently teaches 2D Design at Collin College.
