This autobiographical sculpture series explores distinct childhood memories.  The work focuses specifically on the ages of  7 to 15 and the impact of those years into present day.  Combining hand crafted art forms with both raw and embellished found objects, I chose each component in this work to represent myself, people and items that have significantly impacted my life.  I create compositions to represent relationships and emotions while materials signify specific traits or actions.  

This particular piece was inspired by the pajamas I was wearing the night my father passed away.  The pajamas were a light flannel with faux patchwork in pastel shades.  Traumatic events give insignificant, everyday objects meaning and value.  I translate the objects that haunt my mind into a piece of my story through sculptural abstraction.

Materials: Wood, yarn, wire, fabric, batting, produce bag, blanket, hand knit dress and doll house phone
