"The Story in Their Eyes"  series consist of eleven oil paintings
created using only palette knife.
I employ this technique, that I adopted and perfected over the years,
because it allows me to play freely with layers of intense colors and textures,
for a dramatic yet realistic result.
 


The inspiration for this work was born while researching the human eye's
subtle yet bold power for expresion. I noticed that the strongest expressions
were of those children who experienced the worl's atrocities.
At awe with the realization of the  strenght that derives from surviving adversity,
an urge developed inside me to give these children a voice.
This series took one year to complete.
 

"The Story in Their Eyes" aims to tell stories of survivorship captured
in the glistening of a child's fleeting stare.
