Artist Statement

I make large scale drawings and drawing installations. My work is driven by a profound and personal fascination with the mark, and an unabashed love for the sensation of mark-making on a larger-than-life scale.

 

The drawings are not imitations of any aspect of nature, nor are they illustrations of a limited conceptual hypothesis. Instead they celebrate the peculiar properties of drawing as relics of the physical act of drawing.

 

As performance, they are rituals; spells.
