Artist Statement

I explore ways conventional approaches to drawing and painting can literally and conceptually interface with new media elements, analog devices and objects. These works investigate ideas of image-making and media in the 21st century. I create opportunities to reflect both on the the history of drawing and painting--the oldest human media technologies--and the screen-based, algorithmically mediated experience of daily life today.
