Artist Statement:   


When I enter the studio, I am the child, delighting in boundless possibilities. Each work begins with a gesture, marked by a stick of charcoal or a paintbrush in hand. Whether seeded in play or protest, this sends me on a quest.


While impulse and uncertainty drive my process, I am methodical, mindful and deliberate in practice. Feeling my way between alternating layers of new marks with selectively hiding old ones, I mine the incidental intersections, overlaps, and spaces in-between for clues and revelations. When emerging lines, shapes, and colors resonate, they become the bedrock for expansion and elaboration; I nurse and tease the rudiments until they push and pull at the edges, struggling for middle ground.

This task charges me to be patient and alert, challenges me to see what is invisible, to capture the intangible, and invites me to dance to my own rhythms.


While studio life is necessarily reclusive, I do not detach from the world; I am witness to all which lap at my consciousness. I prefer to work on several pieces at one time, testing out different points of view and examining multiple facets of an issue, triggering internal dialogues that can be raucous, pensive, or downright hilarious. They keep me humble and engaged. They make me tireless, restless, and full of purpose. This solitary journey I must travel is long and often arduous, demanding disciplined devotion and abiding belief that every turn promises an adventure, and with each passage I am one step further toward home.
