My work explores drawing in its intimate relation to different kinds of movement: the human body in mark making; residual charcoal dust sweeping across a paper to create trails; the drawing itself moved by environment or manipulation; the long history of drawing in portraying and studying human anatomy; the disappearance of drawings left on the street; the side-stepping away from self towards empathy that beauty and abstraction can activate; or the structuring tenets of dance improvisation and choreography with which I have a long history and which inform many of my processes of drawing.
