My 100 Dresses projects engage people with their sense of place.

They began (and continue) as painting projects, where I paint 100 small encaustic paintings of dresses on site, all inspired by that particular time and place, and invite others to do so with me, resulting in a portrait of a place in 100 small details, carefully observed and whimsically rendered. You can see many of the dresses by following the links below. Enjoy. They're a hybrid creative writing/visual art project, so seeing the image and reading its name are equally important.

Since 2011, I have moved into sculpture, building dresses on people's bodies using clear packing tape, removing and installing them in the environment, resulting in an evocative and ephemeral occupation of the landscape by these very human volumes.
