I make marks on paper to create a record of places, events and experiences.  It is a means to explore the chaos of the seemingly random occurrences in the world around me.  Exploring and attempting to visually interpret the phenomena of the world around me allows me to understand both my insignificance and my intrinsic place in the universe.  All the intangibles that create me: my memories, experiences and emotions, are products of tangible or measurable phenomena.   The actions of the natural world inform our experience and place within it. Physical phenomena: sound, motion, light and energy are what shape us.  This is what I attempt to visually interpret, from the layering of sediment and the formation of terrain through the action of wind and water, to the movement and interaction of celestial bodies.
