A 'stolen glance' occurs when a person looks at someone\, ho ping that no one will see their true intentions or feelings. In my portrait work\, I seek to capture these looks\, as they are far more interesting th an the classic portrait pose. Depicting a subject's 'stolen glance' can rev eal hidden emotions or motivations that appeal to a viewer\, regardless of whether they know the subject or not.

But is there another typ e of stolen glance? Is it the glance of someone who has had something of th eirs stolen? Their home or possessions perhaps? Or something less tangible but crucially important like their dignity\, freedom\, rights or future?
Loss is a universal human experience that we all can relate to. Our internal wiring predisposes us to feel empathy for those in pain. I wa nt to trigger this natural empathic reaction by showing what the faces of d ispossession look like. In this show of new works\, I have painted refugees \, the homeless\, the disenfranchised\, in order to explore new ways of see ing and being seen.

All proceeds of sales go to the Brotherho od of St. Laurence.
