I view my drawings as ceremonial narratives, told for the purpose of confronting mortality. I am interested in the visceral nature of religious phenomena in relation to the natural world and the act of creating. These drawings explore how the detailed construction of images serves as an invocation and brings comfort. Forest wildlife and the human body become vulnerable altars, processing intimacy and healing through discovery. These characters chronicle a haunting awareness, a space where physical boundaries blur. My works are extensions of the acts of ritual as we pursue the sacred; they are questions of devotion.
