Artist Statement/Bio

“The art of transforming ourselves with make-up and masks is a universal phenomenon. Decorating one’s face in various patterns and shapes has been a part of the cultural make-up of many societies since the beginning of time. Face painting is a common theme across cultures as divergent as the Indigenous American tribes in North America and various tribes and cultures in Asia, Africa and South America. In Native American Tribes, face painting has been used for artistic expression since ancient times.”
