My artistic process prizes aesthetics for its own sake, but it also cherishes the revelation of process that comes through the creation of the work itself. I am interested in the way drawings and paintings, whether polished or rough, show artistic decisions, doubts, certainties, and the unfolding of an image through the pentimenti of layered marks. I am also interested in a creative dialogue with other artists, which often leads to inspiration from and appropriation of art historical sources.
