I have been concentrating on the act of drawing. I draw to reveal. I intently control my drawing but I do not foresee what the image will be. I am amazed at the interconnections I find between the drawing and nature, experience and my experiences. I also work with multi-media and the reciprocal occurrence between. I track time, pursue perfection, cultivate an intuitive reflex and use my analytic nature. I often exhibit my drawings as a cohesive series because they, as a group, synthesize the larger context of a period of time and events taking place.
