Artist Statement

Drawing is like weaving thought and perception. It is immediate and makes you aware of the contradiction between a desire for flow and the need for a static image. My drawings usually reference everyday things and fragmentary experiences; reworked newspaper images, shadows, views through windows, memories of other paintings or drawings, fragments of architecture, trees etc. When exhibited the drawings are presented in clusters at different heights to create a slightly destabilizing effect.
