SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE NEW "PORTALS" BODY OF WORK!
The Katrina Collection is a series of mixed media assemblages which incorporate storm debris from Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. There are approximately 1000 pieces in the collection to date, so most of the pieces are in the archives, located on the right hand side of the poage-just scroll down a little bit.
Prodigal Son began with the lovely photo of the young man in uniform from one of the world wars. I mounted it on a framed mirror and a distressed picture frame, and surrounded it with wire. This piece speaks to loss and sorrow, but it is also a reflection on what it means to come home from life-changing events.
