Statement

There is a certainty I experience uniquely in the movement of pencil on paper. For me, drawing is stillness and confidence; it’s just the pencil, the paper, and me. What I love about using birds as my subject matter is that they are a rich source of visually intricate imagery, which pushes me toward the kind of detailed renderings that allow me to move slowly and thoughtfully as I work.

Clothing and posing the birds adds a quiet absurdity to the portraits that makes me smile. No matter if their gaze appears to be stern, thoughtful, quizzical or amused, I grow fond of my birds’ little faces as I draw them out on the page. I imagine their stories, pleased with myself for trapping them on paper for all to see.
