Doodling is not something I grew out of, but something I continue to grow into.
Mainly experimenting with black and white, but occasionally with color, I strive to create patterns, textures, and characters with little planning.
The practice revolves around following the pen, paintbrush, marker, crayon, or scissor. any surface is a canvas, and no line is an error.
I only listen to my hands, and what comes out is what you see.
There is no editing, only rediscovery.
I learned from having parents who let me cover the kitchen table in paper and spill my entire crayon collection onto it.
I practiced mostly in school, and also everywhere else. Many images are inspired from small ideas that started between the margins of my class notes, on diner placemats, on restaurant napkins.
I am always beginning, and always expanding.
I love creating for people: to make art is to share it.
Enjoy the organized chaos, and thank you so much for visiting.
