Artist Statement
The drawings in my current body of work deal with relationships.  The portrayal of these relationships varies.  Some drawings illustrate people involved together in a situation, while other images show individuals in a solitary moment.  To stage these relationships a representation of each character is rendered.  Specific gestures and postures are assigned to these characters. Along with physical portrayals, a further enhancement is made.  Surrounding these individuals are symbols.  The symbols vary depending on the mood of each character and the situation that they are involved in.   Hearts, numbers, letters or a combined variety of symbols are used to give thought and emotion a physical presence on the page.  Since our thoughts make up so much of who we are I feel that it is important to trace these internal elements.  The intention of these drawings is to examine the physical as well as the internal state of an individual.
