Masking has filled my life as an artist and allowed me to connect with people throughout the world. Beyond my life as a studio artist, this work has enabled me to bring people into the world of masks where they share revealing stories that deepen our awareness of the humanity of their lives and cultures. In so doing, I've found a remarkable way to bridge the ancient forms of mask making and storytelling with a contemporary concern for people's lives.
