I do believe I am definitely developing a theme in my artwork. Dolls and toys are becoming the focal areas in many of my projects.

It all started in 2011, when I was asked to contribute to an October 'Creepy Doll' exhibit in a friend's shop window. At first I thought I would photograph some of my old dolls and Halloween skeletons and see what I came up with. I wasn't very excited with the results and I had a new idea. I laid the dolls on my flat-bed scanner and was quite excited with what came. The scanner made images that were ethereal, spooky, and sometimes quite deliciously frightening! I even put a fake tattoo on a doll (it is still there) and the results are among my favourites.
