The miniatures began as black and white pieces with cinematic lighting, small sketches to not uncommon beauty, unusual faces. Over the course of a year, and one hundred miniatures later, a number of small bodies of work evolved: faces with an intense activity of color; clean, simple drawings of ladies with something strange or beautiful in their hair, like tiny lights or small birds; figures flooded with light or in viscous, foggy surroundings; a number of figures wearing blankets or hoods; portraits that grew second faces; and a few silly pieces.
