My work explores the legacy of my maternal grandfather, a tool and die maker, boat builder, and amateur sail plane fabricator. I grew up with a clear impression of who he was as defined by the work he did. My work attempts to resurrect his skills and investigate the aura of labor. The viewer continues the journey and explores the ramifications of globalization through trade and cultural migration.
