Artist Statement: I started doing art while living in a van in North America in 2007 with my companion bj rossiter. I had a pocket size sketchbook and some dishevelled school-era pencils. I started drawing features and symbols of the landscape and then evolved the pictures into designs. I continue to draw in this way, with a focus on colours. I use pencils, pens and some paints. I also use rulers, set-squares and other geometric instruments that would be relegated to the dustbin of history if I knew how to use the modern computer software that would allow me to do such things in way less time.

Artist Statement: As an artist, I feel what I offer to the world is my hands. For me, the role of the artist is to give and receive unconditionally. Please accept the expression of my self through my hands. I offer them to you freely. It is also the role of the artist to cultivate an inner richness and listening. I do this whilst giving to the world. I’d like to perform this sustained gesture through the changing light of the day. I’ve chosen to perform this over an eight-hour period to reflect a standard work-day.
