Wall Hangings
I began this group while experimenting with layering acrylic paint and resin. I had a supply of vintage porcelain mixing dishes at my disposal, so I decided to use them as containers to hold the resin and paint. Then I decided the dish needed a holder or frame as well and began to incorporate the polymer clay surrounds.

Reliquaries, Shrines and Portraits
“Reliquary From a Lost Civilization” was the first of the Dankquart Collection series that began with the story of my meeting the fictional adventurer Victor Dankquart. He related to me the discovery of this relic from a time and civilization long passed and forgotten and the series grew from there to include shrines and portraits. The series has expanded further to include artwork from different periods of the lost civilizations history. It has also become my main body of work.
