I want my drawings to capture a sense of internal psychological spaces as well as the external body and its organs. I am interested in the language of symbols for both sexuality and gender. Up to seven feet in height, they emulate disquieting echoes of viewer's own bodies. I use multiple layers of gestural marks with watercolours, graphite, oil stick and in an additive and subtractive process to create imaginary and suggestive forms. I like the contradictory nature of the gleaming black grounds, the controlled against the organic visceral metaphors and the gritty deposits of pigment left behind by drying watercolours.  I desire the viewer to be seduced by the surface of the work itself as much as by the appearance of the forms.
