I've always been interested by the endless variations of faces that exist. My drawings are a way for me to build form by repurposing facial expressions - experimenting with different ways of highlighting, manipulating and threading their weight together. This often produces characters that seem to be in precarious positions between reality and abstraction, and provides me with room to consider a range of ways to connect 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 so effectively explores uncertainty and anxiety.
