Artist Statement
My drawings tend to be very spontaneous, but many of the images have been integrated from a variety of sources; textbooks, encyclopedias, coloring books, comic books, grocery store circulars, and the yellow pages. I distill them into more iconic images. I like to utilize images of people, products, processes that are ideals; images that are meant to sell a product or explain a principle. I like to use diagrammatic devices to explain more intangible processes. These are the issues I think about and the sources I refer to when making images.
