I am interested in how people communicate: effectively and ineffectively. Communication is the one thing that binds us all together, the one common thread that must continue. Without communication what else do we have? When making work I am interested in the certain moments that communication or lack of communication occur and interpreting those moments through mark. What interests me most is when the marks that emerge on the page overlap and meld with the marks below or on top and create their own type of mark, something that I had not planned. My work is a mix of intuitive and deliberate mark making paired with the spontaneity that occurs when these marks overlap.
