Reception: First Thursday, February 4th, 5-8 pm

 Artist Statement:

The drawings in this show are about my love affair with pen, pencil, and paper – the tools I use to record my mind’s take on beauty and serenity. Pen and pencil putting down imagined lines and shapes on paper, enclosing light and shadow, defining form. I work with straightforward tools, and a process whose immediacy I have favored as long as I can remember.  I conjure up images that delight me and fill me with a sense of peace.

Every drawing is a stop on the road to that sense of peace, a road I trace on paper with my pencil and my pen.
