When I created my first stencils 30 years ago, they were a means to get paint onto material. Once I took a picture of a stencil and discovered the beauty of the paper. I like to find the character in the faces of subjects for my cut paper portraits turning the things we try to hide into things of beauty. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look at faces in a differently, to feel emotion for the people in them, and to help them find beauty in something as simple as a piece of paper.
