 My work begins unplanned. Line drawings, scribbles, and painted strokes are made with various mediums including oil, lumber crayon, resin stick, charcoal, graphite, and ink. I work mostly on old materials—book covers, repurposed paper, tabletops, wood blocks. My installations have expanded to wall drawings, books, and standing boxes. The drawings/markings are created with my non-dominant hand. The use of my left hand allows me to draw in an unpracticed manner, with less fixed intention and control. I have realized that in the finished work I see aspects of our human condition—vulnerability, frailty, kindness, anger, frustration, humor, curiosity, and relationship. As well, I see glimpses of stories, moments, dilemmas that may represent how we approach or walk through life.
