Artist Statement

When I look at a body, I want to truly know it. I search for a composition that will show the spirit of the person in front of me.

There are two forces that continue to hold my attention and inspire the work I make. One is an obsession with collecting research, through repetitive drawings of the same environment and often different depictions of the same person. The other is an emotive force inspired by movement and gesture.

In my current work, I am striving to use these forces together in a complimentary way.
