I've always been fascinated by the endless variations of faces that exist. My drawings are a way for me to explore and repurpose facial expressions - experimenting with different ways to highlight, manipulate, and thread together their forms. This often produces characters or stories that seem to be in precarious positions between reality and abstraction, and provides me with room to consider various ways of connecting them over empty space. I pull many of my faces from mid-century film and television, particularly horror and science fiction, and I've come to love how the imagery in these genres can so effectively explore uncertainty and anxiety.
