'Fear is the Darkness to the Light that is Curiosity...'
Since there is such a significant energy exchange that occurs with death as well as the process of preserving the deceased, I make sure that all antiques are as naturally examined and collected as any deceased fragments I choose to use.
Wings have been an obsession of mine from a very early age, and it's exciting to see that my love for wings has become a symbol that has brought me to this current artistic stage. Wing imagery invades my fine art, but I really love the depth and an understanding of respect that comes with connecting to a once-living being and preserving it with other antique fragments, fusing their seperate histories together. Of course I can't speak for the individual birds that I have preserved, but I'd like to think that they would appreciate the gesture of being perfectly preserved in a state of flight.
My work tends to lean toward females of all ages and variety, though I like to hope that my pieces grace the bodies and walls of anyone who has a deep love for the curious, the lovely and the macabre. I aim to evoke a sense of wonder and imagination. To take the hand of the Alice within and bring them into a personal wonderland of profound beauty, sultry seduction, and imprint something upon them that maybe they long to express, relay or understand in themselves.
