is work that happens

Language happens in time
My practice crosses disciplinary boundaries and is fed by an ongoing apprenticeship to the English language. You can find out about my publications and approach to writing-as-literature here. Writing contributes to my thinking about drawing as I consider letters to be marks, and words a way of drawing.
Drawing happens in time
I understand drawing as a way to record, respond to, and come to an understanding of the world that is continuously subject to revision. For me, drawing is thinking. I use drawing to annotate and analyze my experience and to teach myself to see with more attentiveness and care as well as to remind myself that thinking is ongoing.
Walking happens in time
Much of my practice is walking, listening, and looking. I have never had a driving license; in the absence of this mode of transportation, I perceive the world at the speeds of walking, the bicycle, and public transit. These tempos shape the way I work and what I make, as well as acting as ethical first principles for my understanding of and approach to the world.
