The Toy series was a result of a show I participated in called "Heads" put on by the Art Guild of Pacifica in 2011. I took the show concept literally and looked for doll heads to shoot mostly at flea markets and yard sales. I would often offer the vendors 1 dollar ($1.00) to allow me to shoot their dolls and statues and rearrange them. This gave me the time to create scenarios and stories in my imagination. Relationships between objects emerged. These shoots became magical as new concepts were born.
