I joined the Drawing Galaxy in 2009 and continue to appreciate the challenges that it offers. My work goes off in directions I would not have considered on my own. Looking back over seven years of drawings, I am stunned by the range of expression I have explored. My techniques have evolved but my goal remains steady: to create images that please me to contemplate.
