Artist Statment

My faces are about the many moods, contemplation, and quiet of the eyes and the face. The in between times, the multitude of moments that we express through our faces.

They each begin as an idea. That idea changes as the relationship of layering, colors and texture begins. The marks I make create the texture and the feeling of the piece. The mood and appearance develop within the layers until it appears complete.
