Works on paper

In my work I relay personal experience by using imagery, areas of painted color, and text. Combining recognizable elements with nondescript shapes or poetic word combinations allows the disparate parts to strengthen one another and raise visual questions. These questions form connections between art and experience, such as, the dichotomy between human hardship and an expression of hope. Or recognizing the sense of human frailty and uncertainty among ideas of permanence. Drawing with humble materials of graphite, watercolor, and pinholes, reflects the austere beauty of these concepts.
