Artist Statement

I am interested in this world that resists framing, where nothing is fixed.  As artists and humans, we are always framing, editing and narrating our versions of experience.  But there are so many versions, so many points of view.  I make images of what I see and how.  The work always documents what I see, hear and touch.  Sometimes there is an illusion of seamlessness, but my drawings are always fractured and composed of multiple, often fluid, points of view.

Working on paper is important to my process.  If the limits of a rectangle cannot contain an image I'm drawing, I make the drawing bigger by adding more paper.  The adding, the folding, the drawing: all are evidence of my physical process and my presence in a larger world.
