“I am a painter who makes dolls. The dolls are actors, instruments that I use to work through things that I can’t shake or don’t understand. I sketch with sculpture. Pictures get made through 3 dimensions. What’s painful gets processed through play. Play also allows me to court the unknown and to welcome in delight.”

“Much of this work came through research into the Reconstruction era of where I live in York County, SC –an era marked by extreme violence and known as “the Outrages.” The question that I ask again and again: where does the violence go? This question has haunted my work in the studio.”
