Artist's Statement.

This work focuses on the human eye and all of its magnificent detail.
I spent many years as a scientist studying the eye (did you know that
looking at an eye is looking at someone’s brain?) and I've drawn
them since I was quite young. 

Are they the "windows to the soul”? 
What can you learn when you study/render the eyes of another? 
What commonalities and differences can you appreciate? 

Through precise detail with pencil & ink, these works ask you to explore the seemingly "everyday" so you might realize that no human eye is commonplace at all.
