Charleston Boxes

Created from natural materials, shells, fiber, wood, metal, and paper, these works capture the haunting beauty and history of the South Carolina Lowcountry. I build or rescue wooden boxes, line them with black encaustic beeswax, then add found and altered objects to create narrative-within-narrative vignettes. Not unlike a snow globe, each Charleston Box contains an entirely unique universe that captures a fleeting moment in time.
