I define my creative action as drawing, whether I'm using a paintbrush, drawing tool, or my fingers. In my work the word 'draw' means not only to place marks on a surface but also to extract, like to draw blood or to draw a breath. My work is informed by the experience of life, both mine and that of plants, animals, and other people.
