Pen and art markers. w15 x h21

Inspired by natural textures, patterns, and images, I build intricate forms from small components, working through a magnifier to create complex images around a variety of themes. I work with ink and markers because they are permanent; I cannot erase the marks I make on the paper, only sometimes modify them, forcing me to be mindful of every mark, of every choice I make.
