I am interested in pushing the envelope of drawing with a keen eye for detail and narrative. In doing so, I verify the mysticism of drawing which keeps me engaged with it as a vehicle for visual expression. I choose graphite, collage, or mixed media for my tools. I am inspired by iconography, daguerreotype photography and art history, and am interested in how my work can affirm reality and explore deeper areas of the human condition. When successful, my artwork is both playful and challenging, and, like an icon, invites contemplation.
