Tales of Twenty-two is a series within the body of work known as The Harriet’s Secret Collection. The collection is a tribute to my late-mother’s legacy of love; utilizing visions from reoccurring dreams, childhood memories as well as findings from her passing in an effort to create a visual biography. Works, as with “Remembrance”, symbolically utilize the number and the not-so-subtle coincidences surrounding it’s reoccurrence in an effort to pay tribute to the 22 stories shared by my mother and I.

Several years ago, I began to utilze images that represent my childhood. Never knowing that it would lead me in an entirely new visual direction. Three years later Speed Racer is still the driving force that continues to power me along. Mach 5 speed my friends!
He Lives 2, (Boba Fett 17 seen here) is an extention of the ever-growing body of work known as "The Nostalgia Collection; a series of paintings as well as assemblages which reflect on a time when movies were only seen in a theather.
This is the era before the seemingly endless choices available today. The images I utilize pay homage to this time, (my child-hood) These are my memories - my nostalgia.
