I use drawing as a way of making visual lists. With an interest in nostalgia, and the construction of personal narrative, I draw from family snapshots and photographs I have taken.
Using the white of the paper to isolate and distill a subject, I am interested in drawing things in the periphery and examining the commonplace, everyday objects and moments that make up our most intimate spaces and memories. I am drawn to subjects that find a line between being general and anonymous, but also, for me, pointedly specific.
Throughout my work, I am looking at individual drawings as parts of a larger collection, like pieces of evidence, or points on a map.
