Reliquaries speak of miraculous belief; the physical interpretations of a person, place or event.

Integrating the Christian tradition of relics with my own personal narratives, I draw a fine line between that which defines beauty, obsession and honor. My reliquaries integrate found and precious objects, encapsulating the sustained life of memory in disposable objects.
