I use drawing as a tool for discovery.
Walking helps me slow down my thinking and become open to my experience. Seeing is a key part of this process and draws me into the moment.
The work is about noticing, empathizing, and exploring. Mostly working outside on a small patch of land or a path or route, I will trace that place, through regular walking and drawing.
Small books, prints and sketches are the evidence of my experience in that place.
They mark a small particle of time.
