Artist Statement

I hold an interest in drawing as a mode of documentation and expression realized through the process of making a drawing.  My process and approach to drawing has a quiet focus and has long developed from an interest in translating the mechanics of human motivation and drive into visual language.   For example, the internalization and storage of past and present experience- physical, visual, and cognitive parallel the accumulation and organization of line in my work.  Other parallels have been made through various “perception” challenges given to the viewer via sculptural form and/or the illusion of space created by drawing. 

The drawing process consists of layering continuous circular lines using a gel-ink pen directly on the given surface.   These particular pens deliver a crisp thin line without troublesome bleedings and puddles allowing me to draw at a fairly fast pace and create a dense fibrous network of any organization.
