The immediacy in which hatching and total structures evolve a once empty surface of paper or panel into three-dimensional sculpted flesh spurs my continuing fascination with drawing. Often without any reference, figures that rest, weep, or dance in fictitious spaces begin to capture some emotive character of their own. Their purpose is to express that character while representing the significance of drawing as a medium. Whether executed through strokes of charcoal, string pinned on walls, fingers running through sand, or perhaps even crayons marking tabletops, the opportunity to create is always before us. My work represents an eagerness to engage in the act of drawing as an empowered form of conversation.
