Dispersed Pigement on Paper
33 x 31 in.


In my drawing practice, I seek to discover a confluence of the spiritual and material. My works are created through a meditative process of tracing, eliminating, finding and forging drawn lines on the surface of the paper. These accumulated mapped marks become intertwined layers and untraceable histories of past, present and future.
