Artist's Description

“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”
~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Inspired by dreams of “shape shifting”
Shape-shifting is a type of meditation on the relationship between humankind and nature, in particular animals. Shapeshifting is based on assuming certain characteristics of an animal. Traits and talents are also included in these characteristics. These characteristics, traits, and talents are assumed for a limited time and for a particular purpose. A shape-shifter is able to change shape either at will or under special circumstances."

Composed in Photoshop with layers upon layers, clips and cuts and blending bodies to new heads to create the shape shifted models. Effects, lighting, filters, blends, color adjustments, backgrounds, and textures have been used.
