Bio: BFA SAIC.

Artist Statement: I have held up pencils and paintbrushes horizontal, and then vertical, moving my thumb slightly, and squinting my eye to get the exact measurement of a cheekbone. I have been in the etching room with tubs of acid and painted the plates with turpentine tar, I have chiseled into pieces of plywood in primitive alphabets to create crude relief prints. I've drank too much coffee and paced around in the dark of night after looking at a book of Photography, pondering the idols of our civilization. I've drawn portraits of kids as we all sat in the blaring sun, trying to capture them before they squirm too far. I've lightly drawn with charcoal on canvas, and heavily with a brush and ink, knowing it cannot be erased.
