Art Practice

As an artist/researcher/educator, I approach drawing as a way to conduct research across disciplines. To me, drawing is a means of exploring the natural world through observation and mark-making. It allows me to closely examine everything around me, including myself, and to express these observations through the making of marks.

I use natural pigments to create watercolor paint, pastels, and other drawing tools. When I work with these pigments, I am fascinated by the unexpected fragments that emerge when colors mix on surfaces, and the unique life that these traces take on.

Drawing also allows me to explore the relationships between different research practices. By mirroring natural formations, such as roots, with research inquiries, I am able to make visible the intersections of subjects, people, and contexts. This process helps me to better understand the interconnectedness of various fields and to reflect this understanding in my art.
