Protector reflects on man’s desire to leave something behind, the need to make a mark on the world, and create a heritage and protect loved ones even after he is gone. The heal of the foot is blistered with copper, compass, hematite and pyrite gemstones, leaving a trail of sterling silver chain.


From the Lick series, portraying human as sculpture – a multi media project documenting wounds and the potential beauty behind the healing process.  

The portrait shows the wound in context, universal life experiences spilling from the body. The sculpture, a reliquary of the wound, focuses on good that results from purged suffering by highlighting those experiences as precious objects encased in vitrines.

Lick is also a book, a catalog of the portraits paired with stories and poems written by a variety of authors to reflect the sentiment of each sculpture.
