Artist Statement

I think of drawings as vessels in which many discreet decisions coalesce into form, space, and light. I am fascinated by the relationship between an illusionistic image and the finite edge of the paper that contains it. Inside of this perimeter, a piece reveals its own unique order, method, and set of materials. In my work I attempt to merge the formal concerns of modernist painting with the intimacy of quilts and textiles.
