Artist Statement

I am interested in narrative. Specifically what is inferred when we have only a limited amount of information to discern what has transpired. Within my work, I choose small moments–which I have observed–and then combine them to create a narrative flow. More and more these groupings happen in a collection of small works. The gestural form in my drawings functions as a separation from the experience, used to reinterpret the experience both as I see it, and within my use of the image as a visual narrative element. This style of drawing that interprets the world as momentary in nature, creates an expression of  situation by taking only small highlights. These small pieces of a moment demonstrate the idiosyncratic pieces of moments, rather than describe the specifics of the visual experience.
