Toy Stories Series #1 Mixed Media on Board 20" x20" 2013
Toys and the messages they convey intrigue me. I am also fascinated by the visual inventiveness of children. For this series I created “stickers” from photos of toys I purchased as the Dollar Store. I then applied a recipe that included materials commonly used in kids craft projects—Mod Podge, glitter, sand, chalk and dry pigment, which is a material that has been an integral part of art making since the first creative marks were made on the walls of the Lascaux caves.
