My primary focus is to capture a spiritual essence and dynamics of my subject and to arrive at a reduction of form and an economy of line in my work.

Sketching is the one activity in my life that I enjoy most.  I prefer continuous 5 to 10 min. sketching which forces me to respond quickly to my subject when working to find placement and relationship of lines that best capture the rhythm and balance within my subject.  My line is much more confident as a result to working quickly.  It is the confident line in my sketches that I find most satisfying.
