About > Statement
I've always been fascinated by faces, not only by the endless variations, but also the individual forms that fit together to create them. This has developed into an interest in the ways one can manipulate weight, balance and light in drawing, as well as an ongoing pull towards experimentation with graphite. In my drawings, I insert faces, lines and textures into void environments, giving a spotlight to their heavy foms while looking for ways they can interact with the empty space. My work is greatly influenced by film, particularly horror and science fiction, and I've come to love how the imagery in these genres can personify anxiety and uncertainty.
