A Familiar Face


Made without reference or planned intention, the spontaneity involved in making these portraits forced me to step away from the preciousness of realism and instead allowed me to be more playful, take creative risks, and make mistakes to grow creatively. One mark led to the next until a face appeared.  Faces seemed familiar in a personal way, perhaps reflecting metaphorical masks that I have worn or continue to wear during various points of my life.  Alongside my botanical work, the two subjects together tell a story about the relationship between life’s beauty and life’s tragedy.

In the spirit of reconciliation,

I acknowledge that I live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
