Artist's Statement
" "

My Large drawings explore life forms in various moods and settings.

I work with watercolors and colored pencils and color pencil art sticks. The art sticks are identical to the pencils except they do not come in wood casings. The sticks allow me to work in a larger area and at a quicker pace than I can with pencils.

I draw on a French, acid-free printmaking paper known as Rives BFK paper.

Most of my work is derived from photographs. Often I'll begin by focusing on a single element within that photograph, then let my imagination take over.

Where I place a figure on the page, whether it is centered, in a corner, or on the side, influences the feeling evoked in the viewer. My intent is to explore the interaction between the subject and the surrounding space.

Just as manipulating a figure's placement enhances it's psychological dimensions, so too does exaggerating and distorting the image impart a feeling that cannot be conveyed by a realistic representation. By keeping a subject's physical characteristics vague, for example, I encourage the viewer to complete the figure with his/​her own personal vision. Additionally, distorting an image lets me impart a feeling or movement that cannot be conveyed by realistic representation.
