I use India ink markers in an array of bright and pastel pigments on gesso primed wood and paper. I like to test the limits of ink with the use of unusual color pallets. I have had some of my drawings digitally printed onto tapestries in order to bring softness to the imagery, much like the person or object being portrayed.
My work focuses mainly on the female and male form and its relationship to the natural world, along with illustrative works of plants and animals. I tend to look at the relationships of my subject matter in terms of playfulness, coyness and sensuality. I place the people, animals and objects in settings that are both familiar and comfortable, but at the same time in unusual situations to provoke intrigue and desire. I take the chaos that exists around us in the world and organize that chaos in my imagery.
