Exploring Europe and studying printmaking in the United Kingdom were profound life and educational experiences. Living, working and travelling within societies steeped in history and culture added a richness to my education that could not have been gained from academic rigor alone.

Inspired by an extended stay and travel throughout India, these works begin to explore the indelible impressions made by the people, the culture and the landscape. The sensory overload ignited profound creativity. The ideas and inspirations generated during this period laid the foundation from which nearly of all my current endeavors stem.

Drawings from life have been an essential component of my education and studio practice as an artist. Ranging from quick observational sketches to fully realized drawings these works record my interests, influences, development and travel over the years.

Arranged in a loose chronological order, the drawings span from 1992 to the present.
