Where have all the children gone?!

"I suddenly find myself the grandmother of four precious little girls from the ages of 5 months to 7years, and am disturbed by the cultural shift that has caused these children to give up much of their childhood innocence. They have gone from "Easy Bake" to hot, sexy girl syndrome. The first five of these works is a series that makes a social statement. It is called "Child Sexuality on a Pedestal".

The other pieces are found objects that would otherwise be in the landfill, and to a great extent are animal parts, which I revere as an integral part of nature."
