In culture hyper-saturated by electronic imagery I use the traditional
materials of a quill pen and a bottle of ink to create large-scale
images that persist in exploring and claiming the sub-technological
process of observation and mark making. In my recent work I am creating
life size representation of figures and objects. There is a vital
relationship that arises between the observer and the observed on a
scale of one to one.
The sleight or sloppiness of hand creates an awkward and intimate
surface which is compounded by the definitive and energized process of
cross hatching.

My subjects include the banality of mass produced domestic artifacts;
the politics of war; sexual identity and power; and the beauty
disclosed in the close scrutiny of natural and man made structures.
This diversity of subject matter is a critical element in my attempt to
express the complexity and variety of contemporary life.
