statement

My work tells the stories of individuals from all over the world; those who’s history and ancestry are told within their faces.  Using the relationship of people and their environments, I create a candid intimacy that connect us to each other.  I am deeply moved by those who work with their hands, keeping alive the artifacts of humanity.  I find great importance in the passing down of trades from generation to generation, commanding a presence and pride as craft-makers and workers of dying traditions. 

Through my work, I try to recreate the emotional content of a time, place or face that I fear will be lost in the near future.  I am interested in capturing the odd experiences of the human condition.  The simple, quiet moments between large events.  The impacting details that make up life that are easily forgotten.
