My work this year is large and small scale drawing and mixed media sculpture. I am responding to my day to day intake of experiences from the natural and mechanical world. I am also feeling out material and really enjoy the act of working through surfaces in both drawing media and object media. The actual material is what is transcribing my way through making ideas into images.
