Artist Statement
Drawing is the heart of this artist's practice. She draws everyday. A day without drawing is meaningless. Language codification (like bipedal locomotion) defines the human circumstance. Drawing is a private language. The work is feral, quick, sensitive and poised. It is grounded, evolutionary and calm. There is an overlay of an effervescent surface. while color and line intermingle in a dance across the page. The illusion of depth advances an understanding of that underlying silence and holds the eye on the page. They create a sensation of alert awareness in the viewer. they ask you to step out of your cerebral confines and exist in a whole space.
