My desire to make the Individuals stems from a long held interest in human character traits. Watching the way a person acts — his or her gestures, expressions and demeanor — has provided lasting images that result in drawings. As I take the drawings into three dimensions, my Individuals become life size iconic characters. The qualities of the glass from translucence to the movement of color throughout the volume enhance particular aspects of each portrayal. The mood and the attitude of the individual depicted are supported by the colors and their method of application.
