Abstract drawing is an endless adventure of invention and discovery. I engage line, mark, shape, space, and color to convene on paper. They fraternize and present me with surprise, whimsy, and delight. An assembly of marks triggers my imagination with robust encouragement. I am captivated by the rhythm of color. I endeavor to ascertain its capabilities for transparency, saturation, volume and with it, light, shadow, and contrast. I use all manner of materials including watercolor, markers, crayons, pastels, ink, and colored pencil. I merge multiple colors to inspire movement as they grant me a rousing and infinite voyage in abstraction.
