Artist Statement: I am a veteran artist, educator, and traveler whose studio practice focuses on drawing-based investigations into history and culture. I cull inspiration from my travels throughout Europe, Asia, and America - experiences that continue to shape and inspire the content of my drawings.

These works are inspired by my interest in imaginary topographies, populated by hybrids of science, history and personal mythologies. As an artist, I am particularly spellbound by locations dominated by geological formations that reveal the slow caress of time and erosion.
