"All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions." 
-Leonardo da Vinci
The Artist
.

All of my work is done from observation, and each drawing is a record of the struggle to understand something about the specific object sitting in front of me. I pick subjects based on appearance and the obscure references they may kindle in my visual and literary memory. Silverpoint is the main tool I use while drawing because it demands patience to produce anything good, and it offers a connection with those artists who first turned to the natural world to inform their work. I take inspiration from the more peculiar graphic work of the European Renaissance, such as the fantasies of Bracelli, Jamnitzer, and Leonardo.
