“I make three-dimensional drawings that are heavily informed by the material remains of the past. I use paper-clay to make fragmentary body parts that I then draw across using ink and pencil. I approach drawing as an act of enlivening and manifestation. In the process of making the pencil or ink drawing knits together with the language of the sculpted form to become a hybrid object that hovers between both disciplines. My objective is to escape the rectangular page and push the two-dimensional medium of drawing into becoming a three-dimensional entity that can confront a viewer.”
