Memory Miniatures

"My partner Shawn had a favorite shirt that he wore all the time. When he had an ink blowout in the pocket, I felt so bad that I couldn't toss it out. Instead I decided to make a replica of the shirt for him as a keepsake.


I realize now that making these pieces fulfills a need to bring myself, as well as the recipients, a sense of peace as we all transition through time and place. Time itself seems to be folded when I look at the miniatures. Like tiny stand-ins, they take on the stories and personalities of their owners with a wider reach of affect than the actual person."
