Artist Statement
This series of drawings explores the transitory spaces that exist between two areas of defined space. By referencing different elements from our surroundings, such as doorways, these drawings investigate the role these transitory spaces play in our everyday environment. Through my exploration, I look to bring attention to the shared space that exist between different areas of defined space.
