ARTIST EXPLORER 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.
