My three-dimensional work and two-dimensional work are always intertwined. Whether a refined drawing or a simple sketch on scrap paper my drawing practice always informs the work I am doing at the bench. In this set of drawings I began to explore plane, line, light and shadow. Eventually I began to break up the rational quality of my drawings by overlaying the forms I was constructing on paper with separate color compositions. I also indicated areas of translucency to create a sense of depth and movement. (Completed Spring 2012)

WORKS IN PROGRESS | STUDIES
The following series of studies represents the beginning of a new exploration. I’ve begun to consider how order can exist within seemingly chaotic, organic structures. Considering how growth can represent not only life, beauty and abundance, but also when left unattended, can lead to destruction. The drawings shown below are my current studies.
