Artist Statement
I am interested in the basic, physical act of mark-making, and in the abstract character of  each mark. When I repeat  the same gesture over and over in an obsessive practice, it  unveils a register of emotional nuances, tensions and rhythms. I build my drawings, and find the repetive gestures to be both meditative and demanding, as I focus  to stay within the rules I set for myself. The imagined course for each line is altered by slight imperfections in the paper, the thickness of the pencil-point as it wears down and the varying strength in my arm.
    I work with an 8B Faber Castell pencil, and the steel-colored graphite surface  of the drawing is slightly reflective.
