The human face always intrigued me. It was the first thing I ever drew and it was the first thing I ever created in clay. In learning about the "Green Man" and in creating my own version of him...I've found a way to unite my love for the face and of nature.

The Green Man's history pre-dates Christian history. He is a composite of a human face and vegetation. It is a symbol reflecting the knowledge that man and nature are interdependent of one another. The Green Man is also a symbol of hope, renewal, and of spiritual knowledge. I've used a stylized version of the oak leaf as the vegetation surrounding my designs.
