In the studio, Current work

New work is evolving every day. Spring 2019 brings about a cycle of work titled tBird’s Love, a fictional story that has been filled in by non-fictional objects and places. The sets and devices in this stop-motion production are products of a decade’s worth of work and inspiration. tBird is a motor-sled driving phantom personality, exploring the MidWest of the United States searching for shadows of the past.

Continuing is GALLEON (2016-present), a stop-motion sculptural installation inspired by science-fiction and nature documentary films. See GALLEON PROJECT page for more information.
