Artist Statement

My work depicts facets of an architectural and decorative world formed in my mind.  The structures in my drawings have an old world sturdiness and sensibility reminiscent of cathedrals, temples and mosques.  The graphite and ink structures are not anchored on a horizon line or within a landscape but are held solely by the white atmosphere of the page, transforming them into floating, iconic monuments.
