In everyday life there is a strain between our desire for intimacy and our thinly veiled fear of vulnerability. In those rare moments when people are reminded of their shared humanity, the world moves. The tension between life and death—temporal and eternal—continually challenges me to draw back the curtain on our insecurities.

With this work I hope to remind people that they are not alone in their fears. Sympathetic and honest portraits allow viewers to recognize that their own guarded fronts cover common imperfections. Not only do we have that weakness and self-doubting attitude in common, but we also share the same defense mechanism.
