My work reflects a strong personal interest in Mexican religious folk art-especially shrines, retablos and Day of the Dead motifs. Calaveras and milagros combine with rusty hardware, thrift store finds and bits of street detritis to create assemblages which often make statements on a variety of social and political subjects. Most recently I’ve become interested in victorian mortuary photographs and rituals surrounding death and dying, life and rebirth.
