ARTIST STATEMENT I make a conscious effort not to work from intent, but rather to invest myself in the materials completely and the emotional and physical response they elicit. I am fascinated by process and decay, the rearrangement or dissembling of patterns and the rhythms that occur when repetition is disrupted. Most essentially, I trust in mark making as the most natural way of connecting, seeing and recording encounters. Books are a vehicle for both abstract and tangible expression, for exploring the compelling tensions between content and responsive, complementary structure.
