Artist's Statement
  My photorealistic graphite pencil drawings of the human figure focus closely on an expressive physical gesture or a particularly significant facial expression. Through the intimacy and delicacy of black-and-white portraiture I strive for connection between viewer, subject, and myself. Family and friends are central to my work, and music profoundly inspires me as well. As a conservatory-trained musician, capturing on paper the musicians I admire satisfies and motivates me to continue to express myself through portraiture and music making. In my position at the UW–Madison Mead Witter School of Music, I work in collaboration with some Continuing Studies faculty and staff on certain music-related programs, such as Winds of Wisconsin, Summer Music Clinic, and the enrollment of community members in our choirs.
