Prior to developing a body of work, a series of small studies are produced. This process provides space for experimentation and is foundational to my practice. My interest resides in the act of doing, translating thought to paper. This free-flowing energy gestures to my passion of process where inspiration is drawn.

It is important to find new and informative ways to advance each project. My objective is to expand on my current material approach by using current woodblock plates. I will incorporate watercolor, acrylic, gouache, ink, pencil crayons, and collage techniques. On completing this residency I intend to produce 20 - 30 small studies in a range of sizes, and two-three small paintings.
