My World... and Welcome to it.

Artist statement from the 2015 opening.

Like walking into the fanciest bakery, with brightly frosted cakes or the many colored sweets in the most special candy shops, I wanted the color and texture of something scrumptious, to welcome the viewer. These are portraits of toys I have kept from my child hood. They are well played with but also well cared for. Through a series of portraits, my world…and welcome to it, invites you to experience the beauty and souls given to toys that have been loved a life time.
