Statemant

“Committed to abstraction, I try to tease out atmospheres and memory fragments of daily life by various means as I draw. The measure I set for myself is to make each drawing considerably unique. The resulting body of work functions more like a collection of short stories than the interlocking chapters of a novel.”
