PHANTOM FACES Series Run September 2016-Present

I first started developing the Phantom Faces brand in later part of 2016. I wanted to draw and paint surrealistic faces blended with cubism. I played around with a variety of shapes, as well as versions of the faces before developing a signature style. The Phantom Faces connect with the audience in many different ways. I always enjoy the reaction and interpretation of the work when shown in a gallery setting.

The Inspiration for the Phantom Faces series was to remove the ego of the portrait and embrace the imperfections in the process. I begin the Phantom Faces with the technique of a one-line surrealist face (this allows me to let go of expectations, and relinquish the fears and doubts I have with the outcome). After I have completed the initial outline and base for the face, I then embellish the image with texture and color. One of the best parts of the Phantom Faces series, is that Jenny and I often collaborate on these pieces, and we have been very grateful for the response we’ve received.
