Hansel and Gretel (this one lights up!!)
The Ugly Duckling
"As a container of life, the egg inspires one to imagine the many things that can dwell inside. It can frame and focus a passing observation, or a deep contemplation, and its intimate nature can draw people inwards. Inside this space is where I create little worlds that can enchant, delight, and amuse people. While the themes are often narrative, I also embrace an appreciation for the decorative. The shell itself is often a subject of my work and a point of departure. I will explore its color and texture, and the juxtaposition between its strength and fragility. I make a conscious effort to consider, choose, and combine different artistic methods. It is in using the humblest of materials that I find the greatest reward."
