My artistic work embraces the processes of marking and mapping where each piece literally ”marks” decades of exploring and celebrating the energy and ubiquity of those basic beloved elements of doodling, drawing, seeing, and even thinking: the point and the line. For me, markmaking has become a form of visual meditation. Mapping refers to my process of organizing the markings, within a single drawing and in creating compositions by arranging groups of drawing on the gallery walls. Markings created from ink and watercolor media not only map specific times, spaces, and places in my past, but also create new maps in the present. My installations of ink and watercolor markings explore the human condition in time, space, and place.
