Scar Series is an ongoing body of work depicting portraits of people with scars, both external and internal.  Though external scars seldom come without internal manifestations, internal scars frequently leave no material trace on the body's surface.  The series, by juxtaposing individuals with both "kinds" of scars, asks us to examine the nature of physical, emotional, and psychological wounds and challenges us to evaluate the very idea of healing.
