selected smiles

"Selected Smiles" is a  series of twenty-six editions of serigraphs  with each print directly connected to one of the letters of the  alphabet. Human expressions have  always been crucial, poignant elements in my art. Some of the faces in  this series are storied, significant, similar, or just plain silly. My  work can be subjective and personal at times, but always strives to be  deliberate, immediate, and revealing. The bold, graphic quality of the  black and white serigraph allows me to get at the fundamental roots of  process and content. In my portrait selections, there’s a focus on  issues of gender, identity, character, humor, personality, ethnic  heritage, and contemporary culture. My work allows the viewer to find  parallels between the portraits I have chosen to showcase and the people  that they encounter in their own daily experience."
