From my earliest memories I have used drawing as a way to deepen my experiences of the things I encountered: movie monsters, comic book heroes, baseball and church. In time this practice became a ritual, and the resulting objects, artifacts of my own comprehension.This approach is an important part of my current work and is the impetus for this series. Some of my most meaningful personal experiences have come from involvement on a team or with a group as we endeavored toward a common goal. The communities I have been a part of offer a transient history described by communal hopes and important personal relationships. In retrospect, these relationships and shared desires define my sense of self. In the thesis exhibition titled Together Let Our Hearts Agree I reinvent the world to reflect my current understanding and desires, searching for spirituality in relationships and personal connections.
