I love old wrinkled faces. So much story behind each line and shadow, like an intricate map of their life. Where they have been. What they have done. How much did they smile. How much have they hurt. All to share with a young face searching for the right path.

Lived - in progress

I thought I would share how she came to life.


My 'day job' used to be working as an EMT, where I fell in love with the elderly. They were always my favorite patients.

Laugh Scream Cry

Ok, so it's been a while. I thought I'd pick up some charcoal and work on a few face studies. I'm fascinated by expression and how emotion can be communicated without the use of words.

Embracing Imperfection

I notice the dirt underneath my feet as it gently snuggles against my flesh, inviting me to become the earth for a moment. I inhale the environment, filling my lungs with the minerals that have been at rest, like me. I can taste it's life as it transitions into blood and replaces my emptiness. I feel alive.
