I have always been curious. Curious about life, the environment, ideas in general and how to weave all of these together.
Observational drawing for me not only records what I see it starts the process of art making. Drawing as a process is so interesting, to draw, re-draw and correct, so the flow of information become a series of partnerships between marks, an architecture that can be traced. The process becomes the art and no matter what materials you use, the act of drawing is an interro- gation between artist and the point of interest.
The work is about fragments of time, object, drawing, and memory. All coming together to tell the story.
