Current efforts focus on biographical/interpretive female portraits, wherein the legacy of the sitter is observed and studied, deconstructed and rebuilt with physical attributes onto a substrate.  The pieces are comprised of spoken words, written prose (experimental vignettes/poetry), found objects, photographs, symbols and created images.  Collectively, they are studies in psychology, post feminism and sexuality with an emphasis on the mapping of human failure, mental illness and addiction.  Occasionally, these elements are matched with ordinary objects – cakes and assorted sweeties, household items, chandeliers, rollercoasters, etc.

The medium is mixed: oil, acrylic, paper, metal, ink, pencil and all forms of markers on Hardbord or Scratchbord, layered for longevity and sealed.  The frame for each piece is customized with corresponding elements in metal that are welded by hand around – and often directly to – the piece.
