The pictures you sent me did not do her justice - she is even more beautiful in person. I love the contrast between the shininess of her wings and the matte finish of the rest of the piece. I love her serious expression - becoming Bird Girl is hard work! Thank you so much for creating her for me!

The evolution of a maskmaker...

Some of you may wonder why I'm putting so much energy into the making of masks. Well, after years of being a maker of many different things, I finally began to dabble in masks (inspired by my own collection of masks from around the world). It dawned on me, after the first few that I made, that a path was opening up before me. I knew that I didn't want to copy foreign masks or even to borrow ideas from them. I did want to be a part of the mask tradition. Thus began my journey. Very early on, around 1998, I decided that I would make "American" masks with contemporary ideas - my contribution to the tradition. After a while, the masks became more and more personal which seemed a natural progression. I continue making them with the hope that some of the ideas I present are universal.
