I began making dioramas in 2010. I love cutting paper, shadow boxes, and exploring depth of field in image making. My dioramas are little theatrical scenes. Sometimes a single diorama will tell the whole story, and sometimes a single scene is part of a longer narrative.

There’s something very satisfying about taking an idea from inside my head, and giving it physical form inside another object.

This is a very small sampling of the hundreds of dioramas I’ve made. Most of them are documented throughout my blog.

Some are for sale in my shop.
