The Metamorphosis series started in 2012 when I was asked to produce a piece to help raise funds for an area near my home that had been devastated by forest fires. The following year my mother passed away after a battle with cancer. The idea that things transform within and without and that nothing ever goes away and nothing ever stays the same drives this series. Each piece is a transformation of the previous work with the central figure being the only thing that remains somewhat recognizable. This is an ongoing series and I try to produce one or two pieces each year.
