"My work is drawing based. A lot of my drawings are of places that have a deep personal association for me. My aim, however, is not only to convey a sense of place and belonging, but also an attempt to capture the ineffable, to invite the viewer to look beyond and beneath what they see. My process is one of building up tones and textures using a technique of charcoal and carbon combined. This process yields a wonderful range of blacks and grays that vary in density and transparency as much as in tonality. Much of drawing’s appeal to me lies in its very constraint, its simplification, the reduction of nature’s macrocosm to the black of the charcoal and the white of the paper. For me, the act of drawing is an end in itself."
