Artist's Statement

I began my career as a theatrical make-up artist at the San Francisco Opera. Since then I have become a portrait artist of women of diverse ethnicities. I seek to explore the subtle differences in skin tone, eye shape, mouth shape, etc. And while it is true that each face is unique and individual, we are astonishingly alike. We are One. The portraits are done on four canvases and meant to be interchangeable. Imagine the possibilities!
