Artist Statement
    I make installations and works on paper.  My projects are conceptually driven and process-oriented, involving the passing of time. I use a variety of media – from gouache to concrete, used clothing to eggshells. Each project addresses a specific site, context or concept, exploring issues of social and environmental concern, usually through abstract or poetic means.

    This series of gouache drawings explores traces of time, visual sound, improvisation and relationships – relationships of colors with colors and individuals within groups.
