Half Awake

I love all things little, in fact if anyone shoes me a miniature something I will go all gooey and come out with a variation of ‘awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww’! I got me weekly from the Served through today and spotted these lovelies. They make me go ‘awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww’ a lot!


          In my Half Awake series I construct scenes by combining household items, natural objects, and train figures under one inch in height. By pairing figures and context I create characters that are engaged with an unfolding narrative. I use dioramas to provide a voyeuristic peek into the vulnerability of each subject as they reflect upon their surroundings. Minimal yet familiar settings leave room to focus on emotions, grand or small, that often get lost in the minutiae of daily life.
