A photograph is, in and of itself, safekeeping...holding a parcel of time. This work is my exploration of the desire to protect that which is, or is perceived to be vulnerable or sacred.  As a mother to three young children I am present to the maternal urge to lock away the sensuality of a young girl or the exposed emotions of an adolescent boy. Secrets, memory, innocence, time...the blessed human awareness of these fragile certainties and our very own finality lies at the core of us all.
