Beginner’s Mind

A series of drawings on wood exploring childhood narratives and the emotional geography of memory.

Begun in April 2015, these drawings were/are a “beginner’s mind” experiment to shift the way I thought about my own art making. With the notion that I could start anywhere and simply make marks, I managed to attach myself to the process of these drawings in a better way than I had previously.

I have always made associative art in some form or another. These drawings are the most successful to me in that sense. As I worked, I could better observe the recurring marks, symbols, and flows from one drawing to the next. I gained an increasing sense of the language I was working with and how to best facilitate it.
