â€œI am an artist working in a variety of media including painting, digital and sculpture. In recent years I have become preoccupied with the formal/expressive possibilities of the doll as an art form. I am fascinated with the way in which dolls can function simultaneously as contrived objects and as living entities. I draw on a wide range of references including world art, art history, mythology and popular culture to inform and empower my doll sculpture.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the San Francisco Art Institute and have shown work throughout the US. My doll sculptures are in collections throughout the US, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, and Norway.â€
