The outline of each of these tiny dresses is of one I once wore as a child. Each contains an image of something important or influential in my life. They are in many ways what makes me who I am today. For I have grown. I am no longer a child. By becoming an artist, I now lead a different life from the one I was taught to want. I have chosen a new dress to represent my new way of life. This work is a study of my past and of my future, a study of what has become my focus and what is now a distant memory.
