Go Play in the Basement While the Parents Talk


This series represents moments in time that I remember as a child. Each still life was set up to represent a certain memory in my childhood that is set to trigger emotions of peace yet express the chaos of childhood at the same time. Each image has a specific title to emphasize the theme further. Exploring the idea of being in that childhood state of mind where nothing in the world matters but the things that are right in front of you. It is in these moments of childhood that memories are created and captured, then cherished for generations.

If You Had Met Them...


"We could have never loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it. If it were not the earth where the same flowers came up every spring that we used to gather with our tiny fingers as we sat lisping to ourselves on the grass - what novelty is worth that sweet monotony where everything is known and loved because it is known?" George Eliot.
