I started making masks a few years ago as a result of my fascination with masks as ritual objects. This interest continues to grow and evolve as time goes on. The masks have become (for me) a commentary on life and the human condition. Although my masks are not wearable and, therefore, not used in traditional ways, I hope that they have the power to communicate ideas. I especially like to emphasize humor, wit and irony in my pieces and I hope that the masks are able to speak for themselves.
