Artist Statement

 My drawing process is simple: I put pen to paper and make a line, followed by thousands more lines that morph into utterly unique artworks. Much of my emphasis on patterns and precision comes from having Asperger Syndrome, which presents itself as an ability to do repetitive line work for hours on end. 

 

Through the use of these repetitive ink lines, I explore the balance between calming and disorienting patterns. At times, my ink lines meander freely, creating a sense of calm. Other times, my lines are frenetic, verging on the chaotic. In each mode, I remind myself to slow down, savor the process, and discover complexity within simplicity.
