Lately I've been trying to figure out what direction my new body of work will be taking. As always, I focus on the particular experiences of the feminine heart, and more specifically, what provokes my personal passions. My early notes for my upcoming shows were more focused on a body of 'sideshow freak' carnivale portraits....but my newly re-kindled love for all things Vampire has turned my work towards the darkest side of the supernatural. While researching a proper title, I stumbled upon "Phantasmagoria"....which is the name given to 'Magic Lantern' shows from the late 1790's (and will be the subsequent title of my show in Feb.) The shows were designed to project ghastly images of the supernatural onto the walls, including ghosts, demons, werewolves and vampires. My new works will be focused on this theme and I'll post my progress from time to time......

Oh wow that is so awesome you chose that subject. I was actually just researching the subject yesterday for this web banner I was working on for our Cabinet of Curiosities etsy team.
