Artist Statement
Drawing is my means of observation and of paying close attention.  An attempt to capture the way in which light (or the absence of light) moves across surfaces of ordinary objects is compelling to me.  Using the simple tool of a pencil to translate the varying degrees of value change, has captivated me from a very early age.
