My current work explores place through abstract prints and mixed-media drawings. Through considering what it is about place that really influences me, I came to the conclusion that it is not the place but the people that have the most impact on my life and therefore also on my artistic practice. The drawings and prints begin as overlapped silhouette drawings of people who have influenced my life and view of Houston, as well as other places I have called home. In some areas the figures become apparent, in others they fade away becoming more of a landscape or map of place.
