ARTIST STATEMENT

My lines and mark-making serve as a way for me to meditate on who I want to become and what I believe in. Drawing is a way for me to sharpen my endurance and test my commitment to my own thoughts. In the beginning, my marks and spills are murky, but over time, they become sharp and focused. This process mirrors the self-control I must remember to live by in order to free myself from the anchor of unchecked habit.
