Artist Statement

My drawings and collages begin as glimpses of a passing vision that comes in and out of focus. The original images become a point of departure and develop in a process of formal explorations. I reinterpret the images with systems of mark making which becomes obsessive without being precious. The resulting structures may feel raw and vacant, yet they have a sense of space and purpose, leaving the viewer with the potential for narrative.
