Statement

I remember as a child reading the German Fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm and being engrossed in such beautifully dark imagery. The imagery may be dark in nature, but it invokes a subtle beauty by the delicacy of the extracted images and the great care in which they are strung together.

Each finished piece is considered a storybook. Each page, each image is scored carefully with an x-acto knife and assembled layer upon layer to depict one singular candy coated image. In some cases other mediums are introduced, such as textile cuttings and tracing paper to add some color, texture and depth. Each finished piece can have up to twenty different layers to create a more inviting scene.

I call this twisted beauty, surreal-like dark images, intertwined with childlike notions of paper dolls and fairytales…..
