I am often moved to make an impression of what is beautiful and graceful. The simple aspects of applying a mark on paper or canvas is a joy, but working with a suite of marks that eventually deliver form is a way of giving life all over again. My drawings and paintings act as an outlet and reference to my studies and curiosities. My work often embraces the discipline of classical applications, yet makes allowances for little discoveries to soak into and loosen the confines of precision.
