About the artist:
Bio: The SELFIE series. The names of each of these works is as much a part of the work as the image. I am bringing to the forefront sensitive social issues, a great deal of investigation goes into each work. The narrative of each story is not always my personal story. I stage self portraits putting myself into character addressing the social issue. My use of doll heads in the imagery creates a light hearted invitation to the work. The casting of the doll is done with the same attention to detail as the casting of any living model for a role. Once the imagery and composition are set each component is cut out of wood. The images are applied to the wood and assembled as a base relief collage.
