Drawing is at the core of how I understand my art, function as an artist, and my primary method to see, record and interpret the world. Drawing is how I think with the most ease. I draw everyday, mostly in sketchbooks, and see numerous overlaps between drawing and writing, planning, and mimicking. I've also used drawing as a means of exploring material and process. It is important to me because it is cheap, always accessible, and there is very little space between thinking and making thoughts visible. In other words, the process of mediating ideas has only a few steps. Drawing, for example, is clear and direct relative to the ceramic process, where ideas tend to be translated, error and chance lead to new meanings, and the logistics are burdensome and time consuming. Many of these drawings are fragments of trains of thought, some more developed than others, some quick others slow, and many are simply dead ends.
