I’m interested in objects that self-contradict, or that invert received meanings.  I work in series; the images here are representative of three recent and ongoing bodies of work. In "Tools for Today," objects ranging in scale from paintbrush to push broom suggest connections between domesticity and labor, feminine personality and portraiture.  In "Familiars," wooden household tools, encased in a translucent, "flesh-colored" doll maker's clay, diverge from their intended function to a realm of play.  In "Real and Pretend, " ladies' kid leather gloves have been refashioned using doll parts and doll making techniques.
