My works on paper are narrative, figurative and psychological. I work most often with materials associated with drawing: graphite, watercolor, ink. Paper suits my temperament as I work quickly and it allows a flow of ideas to move through me. My mind is associative; current events recall historical or mythical ones, and relate to ideas in language, science, and stories. My works on paper, often large-scale, represent an instance, but an instant that exists at the intersection of the personal, historical and the cultural. They contain layers of meaning and references, and stop short of any one singular meaning. I work intuitively, through trial and error, without preparatory sketches, models or photographs, to arrive at something unforeseen.
