Artist Statement

My process is one of continual adding and subtracting, where rawness is countered by periods of intentional recovery. This intuitive unfolding is at the core of my most recent abstractions, a method that echoes the working of an etching plate. Rubbed, pigmented, and rubbed again, erased passages can resemble pocked stone or a distant space. Marks drawn with a blade come and go, gestures thin as hair, surprise elements that ask for intimacy and synthesis.

What remains is evidence of a desire to lay bare moments of authenticity.
