Artist Statement
These are series of carbon pencil on paper drawings, that I create using the pencil, the eraser and a sock as my tools.  The drawings are not pre-planned rather they evolve through my drawing process.  The result is a group of drawings where the animals coexist in a world beyond ours, and are inexplicably tied together, often not by choice.  The subjects can be described as whimsical but they also conjure the absurd and cruel forces of life.  Using nature as a guide, I hope to achieve delicate and lifelike depictions of my subjects.
