Artist Statement

I draw because I have no choice.  Many things in life are logical,this is not one of these things.  To draw is to be.  It always has been and always will be a process of discovery.

Artist Bio / CV

I have been drawing for many years.  One of my most vivid memories is of a drawing I did in third grade.  During the process I experienced something as an eight year old that I did not understand yet knew was wonderful.  Although I have an MFA, I work in another field because I want to continue to experience that emotion.  I want my work to be honest, unfettered by any political or corporate barricade.
