Artist Statement
​​Drawing Conversation ​​The practice of drawing anchors me. ​I use paint, ink, thread, markers, words, boxes and books to hear myself think. Through shape and line, I discover the structure, the flow, the breath of each piece. I watch the surface as forms emerge, disappear and transform into story. I paint organically, automatically and emotionally. Color deepens the conversation; it can be subtle, dark, funny, mad or exciting. My work is nonverbal conversation without referencing the external world.
