My work involves investigating the drawn mark through drawing materials and other media. I have incorporated electricians cable, hosepipe, and packaging in artworks to create rhythms and linear sensations. I am working with paper and looking at subtle differences in shades and depth of meaning. I am also using string in response to linear constructions and spatial investigation.

Artist’s Statement: In working to liberate the mark from the image, spontaneity on the picture surface creates pictorial sensations sometimes irrational, sometimes childlike.
