Material Gestures

Drawing is my first love. The physical act of making marks connects me more physically to the concept than other forms of expression. Mixing media, incorporating drawing in other forms often happens as I search for elements to convey idea and audience responses.

I also incorporate reductive processes in my drawing by carving out or erasing the surface of a pre-coated sheet of paper. The act of drawing with a mechanical device creates an element potency to the image.
