Artist Statement

My work begins unplanned. Line drawings, scribbles and painted strokes are made with various mediums including oil, lumber stick, resin stick, charcoal, graphite and ink. I work mostly on old materials - book covers, repurposed paper, table tops, wood blocks. My installations have expanded to wall drawings, books, tiny ships and houses and standing boxes.

The drawings/markings are created with my non-dominant hand. The use of my left hand allows

me to draw in an unpracticed manner, with less fixed intention and control.

I have realized that in the finished work I see aspects of our human condition - vulnerability, frailty, kindness, anger, frustration, humor, curiosity, and relationship. As well, I see glimpses of stories, moments, dilemmas that may represent how we approach or walk through life.
