Last summer I started work on this ongoing series of oil paintings. They started off with the idea of creating a dualistic image, one side of the painting had a monster; zombie, a faceless horror; the second side had an image of transmorphic properties-involving varying types of fantastical persons transitioning into/from birds.

I have always been fascinated with the many faces we put on as humans, either as lovers, fighters, mothers, fathers,, sisters, brothers, daughers, sons etc; where does the true self lie and how do we morph into these identies as the day or time goes by. This series has let me explore these ideas through changing images and has given some insight into how these different identity roles affect our true personalities.
