Artist's Statement

I have focused on freehand drawings in charcoal and pastels for thirteen years now. It's an extraordinarily fragile medium. I think about that a lot.  A year ago, shocked by photographs I had seen of fires in Australia, I started a series that I'm just calling The Fire Drawings.  They are entirely abstract, but I have named them to honor animals and plants now endangered bacause of those fires.
