18"x24" oil pastel on canvas
In the creation of this drawing, I aimed to believably portray something out of the ordinary. By using a fixed light source and individualized detail such as the crest on his jacket and the bicycle wheel, the dog wearing human clothes fits cozily in. The assignment was to draw something 18"x24" or larger.
Corks Off , 2009
14" Tall , cork and superglue
This model of a celabratory wine bottle is constructed entirely of cork and superglue. I used a radial sander and a variety of hand tools to shape the originally cylindrical corks into interlocking forms, creating the overall shape of a wine bottle. The center is hollow and the neck of the bottle removable, making a concealed storage space. Its creation was a challenging process. The idea behind the material used was that of the 'found object'. The assorted cork collection was recycled to create this unique object.
