The world is full of fantastic things, some of my favorites being the way people glance at each other, the smell of a wind-filled storm as it encroaches on the city, the tingling of my nerves after my feet slide on a hardwood floor, and the sadnesses and joys and visceral experiences that comprise life. Living is a chaotic and speedy affair, as solid as quicksand and transient as the Texas morning dew. I turn to my art as a means of dallying with things I find interesting. Shapes, colors, and emotions which linger in my mind all find their home in my art.
I employ pen and ink in an exploration of life through shape and line to imbue blank pages with character.
