My work addresses the everyday as monumental. I create images through a series of processes involving chance, observation, and intention that lead to new visual spaces. These works begin by recording my perceptions of my daily life through photos, writing and my sketchbook, documenting walks, anomalies and happenings. The original drawings are transformed through a process of pouring, mixing, and tracing. My current word to understand this is reclamation. I am rehabilitating the line through manipulation, control, freedom, and observation.
