- Artist Statement
One thing apparent in all of my work is the possibility of absurd conflicts..... such as the Barbie vs. the Power Puff Girls chess set; Fruit vs. Vegetable chess set....... the possibilities of making you laugh. Barbie parody postcards; or the possibilities of ridiculous adornments..... such as Barbie body parts jewelry.
I also employ the idea of transformation. A beautiful Barbie with a Troll head becomes a beautiful and funny troll.
All in all, looking for a good laugh is the point of my work.....but somehow, they often end up looking beautiful too.
