Artist’s Statement

I was introduced to the art world at an early age when hours were spent in the Museums of Boston and Public Library where I discovered the diorama rooms that enacted images of scenes of history in tiny boxes.  Being left alone to my own devices in these museums through the east coast and Smithsonian Natural History Museums I began to explore the magical world of nature and how it worked in my child’s memory.  Always having a fascination with the spiritual world of nature and mysterious musings of fantasy worlds created during the Victiorian Era in science and nature books my parents kept.  I began to explore my art with collage boxes made of found objects at the Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston in 1995.  During several moves I started collecting images from old postcards from the early 1900s along with etchings of animals and science journals dating from the Victorian Era of Enlightenment.  Using these images I began to build imaginary scenes of fantasy worlds where humans and nature coexist on an astral plane of mystical imaginations.  20 years in the making and continuing to create Tiny Box Worlds each having its own musings of human interactions with Nature.
