The Hauntings series of collages were created in Chatham, Massachusetts and reflect the palette found there – sand, sea and sky. Each piece is a portrait, containing a sepia-toned ancestral photograph ghosted by the translucent paper seed pod of the money plant (lunaria annua) that grew outside my door. Fabrics, papers, ancient book covers, paint samples and tiny treasures make up the balance. I work in a small scale that relates perfectly to the intimate nature of the subject matter.
