About the latchkey project
Using plaster and alcohol inks, I’ve been working to capture the lost-in-place feeling of the 1970s latchkey kid generation. Each girl is individual but trapped in limbo; her originally vibrant colors are now faded and blurred.
I start with vintage dolls from the 70’s, a cardboard mold, plaster of paris and alcohol inks…
Each latchkey has her own unique name and personality… and I’ll keep on making them until I run out of supplies or space.
I hope that one day I’ll be able to hang them all together on one big wall!
Original plaster/mixed media works: 9”x11’x1.5”
Glass back printing:
The larger glass-backprinted photographs capture this dreamy “lost” quality especially well. I am working toward a series of the glass portraits as well- two a month hopefully. I am up to seven…

The glass portraits are available for purchase… and you are invited to stop by anytime to take a look at my studio and to see the project in person.
