I've always been interested by the endless variations of faces that exist. I enjoy looking for facial expressions that catch my eye and repurposing them as loose constellations on the page, highlighting and manipulating their forms. This often produces characters and stories that seem to be in precarious positions between reality and abstraction, and provides me with room to consider different ways of connecting them over empty space. I pull many of my faces from old 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.
