My works on paper at 8.5x11 inches reflect a time when considerations of cost and place affected my choice of materials. I was always a very mobile person, and creating art in unlikely places (subway stations, cafes, busy traffic areas) has been a hallmark of my development.

Framed in black metal, with a floating effect, using UV-resistant glazing, these clean and carefully executed works will define small spaces well (or in groupings make an impactful statement on larger walls as well) -- careful placement to avoid direct sunlight recommended.

This work is on Crane’s acid-free 100% cotton paper.

The grind and excitement of near-constant movement has given me a stormy and tense relationship to space, and to movement within that space. From walled-off Berlin, foggy Vienna, quaint Alpine villages, and myriad boxy American cities--each environment adding something subtle to my creations. I often pose the philosophical question--why would a thing need to represent another thing, if its own beauty in form should be recognized? I crave tension--seeking truth through examination of angles, trial--error, and the narrative that develops visually through the "indelibility" of contact between pen and paper.
