Artist Statement:

The exhibition is a random gathering of a handful of portfolio sketches and

paintings. None of the work has been shared before. The drawings assembled

share bird imagery and many are dictated by the concepts of pattern,

symmetry and balance that often occur in nature. The sculpture included is

an older participatory assemblage which compliments the drawings. The

drawing “Two Cans” was created for this exhibition and demonstrates the

simplicity and meaning of a metaphor.
