I Multiply You to Repeat Your Usefulness

I engage materially with text and image creating and integrating them as visual ephemera. My hand lettering forms through drawing as word and image that when juxtaposed reinforces the primacy of text in my work. This work stretches back to my early interests in collage, drawing, and writing. I choose to work with words and images in equal measure, earnestly in my writing but often quite whimsically in my visual work. If I tire of one I switch to the other and back again. In my mind and in my hands words and images are naturally combined, open to interpretation, never at odds, and serendipitously perched between accident and intent.
