The work in this series is part of an ongoing investigation exploring the beauty & depth of the human eye. All eyes are beautiful. To say that someone has beautiful eyes means that their eyes have been noticed;  you have gotten to know someone well enough to be that close to them, to be that trusting , that comfortable with them, to look them in the eye. Not an easy thing to do in today’s society. Everyday there are millions of battles waged, won & lost in the human body & are rarely seen by the naked eye. Many battles go unnoticed or even acknowledged, but sometimes the eye, the window to our soul, can reveal the struggles that lie within. These rings, blotches, & irregular  shapes are a testament to those battles in ourselves and also  what make our eyes interesting and more unique.

1997- to present
