This work is from The Milk House Series, a body of work inspired by the contents and history of a now defunct milk house, which once was a play house and later a repository, on a farm in Oklahoma where I grew up.

The series began with cleaning the building which unearthed not only a treasure trove of objects, but, in essence, relics marking the passage of time. It was a decaying shrine to the past.

The construction in this series utilize the objects, history and contemplation which were discovered in this small dilapidated building on a farm in Oklahoma.
