Invention of Style, part 1

Mirror-Twins Imagery

In my work, I focus on drawing the pureness of mark-making (the act of drawing). I use a minimalist style,intuitively driven by pure emotion. I usually work very slowly and carefully, but at any given point I will work in very fast burst of energy. removing lines and carefully choosing which lines should be seen in the finished pieces. I erase and cover my work in many layers.

The drawings are intuitively driven by pure emotion. I can work very slowly and careful, but any given point I will often work in fast burst of energy.
