When I saw a collection of fractured, soiled, porcelain doll parts I was unprepared for my emotional response. It brought a flood of memories and thoughts to mind. There was an undeniable urge to rebuild, redesign, and re-invent each doll remnant. I enjoy using a variety of materials and techniques to create one of a kind pieces.
Some of my pieces relate to history and have a story to tell, others simply present the doll in a new perspective. My intent is to draw out an emotion from the viewer. The emotional responses vary with each individual. I fully accept and celebrate our backgrounds and differences. Life is more fun when you do not take yourself too seriously.
