Engraved portrait of Salvador Dalí with Portuguese ceramic tile motif on a hardwood door.

The art of engraving has a long history.
Relief engraving was one of the first ways in which humans began to document. In contemporary life, this ancient art continues as a way to document myths and stories for future generations.
A relief engraving is designed to be viewed from the frontal perspective. The third dimension is simulated in a similar way as painting or drawing. I engrave portraits because I think this art genre impacts the spectator more directly; the spectator is most sensitive to faces and portraits. I often combine my engraved portraits with Portuguese iconography and motifs.

I use old doors as the support for my relief engravings because a door often symbolizes hope, opportunity, transformation, and new beginnings.
