My biggest inspiration is my sister, who is a doctor. When I was younger and she was a medical student, my sister would bring various bones to our home and I would spend hours looking at them.
I enjoy exploring the forms and shapes of bones. I tend to work from the center and move outwards. My compositions tend to be centralized and avoid the marginal edges. My unconscious takes over when I draw various lines around the shape of the bone, carving out space with a circular motion. The lines are intense and intricate and express both beauty and emotion. The central, circular motion can suggest mood that are always changing. I want to convey the illusion of intangible lines working together as emotion, beauty and pain.
I often draw with graphite, paint with acrylics and use other mixed mediums. The small panels illustrates the illusionistic references to objects and shape which is revealing, desc-riptive and is instantly recognized as a “mystery of origin”.
