Artist Statement

The LINE is a design element and fundamental that can be used as an approach to create abstract forms through the medium of drawing, reinforced with a basic skill set.

I am obsessed with the drawing process – with memory playing a role, allowing thought to illustrate formulation. The only visual observation for my works is the essence of documenting repetition – over and over again as I see it on a daily basis.

Line definition is apparent throughout my work concluding in meticulous drawings and cut paper compositions. Shadows further emphasize intangible planes by planned and defective lighting, hoping to engage each viewer through the presentation of micro and macro compositions embodied on the paper.
