The Personal Stories Series consists primarily of glass-fronted assemblage pieces made from found materials, both man-made and natural. This series reflects my interest in narrative and personal story.
Half way between abstract and representational, these sculptures tend to be lyrical, more visual poetry than prose. I want this work to leave you with the sense that there is a hidden story, that there is always more to tell.
