    The woods are populated with taxidermy animals that are inserted into the scene. Both the backdrop and the animals are from original photography. There is a personal connection to each image and memory of photo locations.  The woods were photographed in Stehekin, Washington while the white deer came from a frame shop in Tempe, AZ.  The zebra was found in a bar in Florence, AZ and the Jacob ram was in a hair salon in downtown Phoenix.

    The Woods represents the suicide of someone I met once. The imagined scene is populated with 50 animals to illustrate the imprinting death creates in the location of the act.       Narrative: Within a few days she bought a gun, made some positive phone calls, and left her dog with a friend. She parked at the trailhead, walked three miles, and then another 1/8 mile off the trail. Her body was not found for weeks.
