I am in love with the tactility of art, I love the way it feels to hold a pencil, to pull it across a deliciously smooth sheet of paper. I love seeing the ways the inks, oils, watercolors move, shine, stain and mark paper and canvas. I love the way they smell. I love that I have at least 1,000 pencils, and still I want more.
Above all, I treasure and desire that when you look at my art, that we’re sharing at the very least a small part of that experience. That when you look, and I hope you spend a lot of time looking, that you see that the fascinations that I have are not merely with the tactile materials, but with the edges, lines, shapes, colors, the gestures, marks that result in a total picture.
