Memory of Flight is a series of 3-dimensional mixed media sculptures. The process of their construction mirrors the subject matter of bodily transformation. The alchemy of art reconstitutes hair, beeswax, metal and cloth into bodies, with a life of their own, the ability to dance and move. My art explores the deeply physical and sometimes painful process of crossing between two worlds; my hands become agents of conjuring and transformation.

"...It's a visceral juxtaposition of sweet and wholly unsavory, yet for the artist, transformation is the key..." -Carolyn Huckabay, City Paper, May 5th, 2010
