Artist Statement

These images are from a current series of drawings done on photographs of stormy skies.  I take photographs of cloud formations that are cropped to eliminate any recognizable elements.  The photographs are printed on rag paper using an archival, pigment ink jet printer. I draw over the photograph with a range of media: graphite, colored pencils, pigment markers and acrylic paint.  My intention is to combine obviously hand-drawn marks with the atmospheric images of clouds. I want to explore the tension between the palpable and the ephemeral as the drawings echo the energy of the cloud formations and suggest the movement of wind currents and weather patterns.
