My interest is in drawing: a marked line, the impression of artist, tool and surface. There I find a level of purity and handmade quality I don’t find in other media. To me, drawing is transparent, baring mistakes and successes in the surface that give it depth and honesty.
What I find most interesting is the unintentional expressive quality in drawing, the errors, the faint erased lines or smudges of ink or graphite left during the process, the human imprint. In our lives, we are marked by mistakes; they can render us immoveable, frozen in fear of continuing, or they can be a beginning as we pick up broken pieces, make amends and press on. The most powerful catalyst for change, progress, wisdom and expression can be after mistakes have been made.
