I create fictional profiles of both unnamed and recognized individuals; Sometimes I describe them through the objects I select that possibly stand in for aspects of their personalities.

In my dioramas, Miniature Events Series, I focus on capturing the timelines of past and current events in the form of miniature, 7x7x2.5 inch dioramas.

In my assemblages, line drawing collages and constructs, I employ recycled objects, for the power associated with them to trigger thoughts and memories. Accompanying these potent objects are photos, line, paint, newsprint. In these compositions, intimate events are exposed, tales of peripheral characters come to life.

In Table Series, I work in unforgiving watercolor, and create a two-dimensional tableau incorporating common or familiar objects, to profile another artist. I am interested in how the use of common or familiar objects can flesh out a story.
