Artist Statement

Toy Stories

The motivation for my “Toy Stories” series comes from personal experiences and responses to world events.  Using toys as subject matter is intended to create a connection with the viewer through the shared experience of play.

The images depicted may be somewhat disturbing despite the innocent nature of the plastic playthings.  There might be a sense of dis-ease coinciding with a feeling of nostalgia and fun.  I hope that as a viewer, you will walk away with experiences ranging from joy to discomfort.  What is important is that emotion is evoked in some form.
