I love drawing with a calligraphy pen or brush and India ink for its immediacy.

 A line shares its own wisdom, and reveals new perspectives on relationships.

 For the past few years I’ve focused on two character drawings.

 I also work in collage and monotype, and love the way these methods integrate what is complex into a simple form.
