Artist Statement

Learning to draw should be as rigorous as it is fun. Building skill invariably leads to greater joy in both creating and appreciating art. Drawing is about learning to trust one's eyes as the incredible instruments they are, discovering a new kind of eye-hand coordination, and to never worry about making a mistake or a bad picture. Erasers help us correct mistakes, and paper can be recycled.
