When I draw, it's very simple. Pilot Precise V5, extra fine, black. Watercolor paper. of some luxurious and smooth sort. Some might degrade my drawing process to "doodling" - which is totally fine. For me, It really is more like journaling. When I draw, the ink flows and the lines direct themselves - it's very cathartic and meditative for me. I have no expectations of what will become, but I do have an order of operations that evolve the more I draw.
I have 2 (relatively) young children. I was able to maintain an active studio practice until the birth of my 2nd son. At that point, I found myself needing some way to explore drawing without being able to spend time in the "studio". I scanned my drawings and used digital tools to create these multi-layered compositions made almost entirely on the repetition of just a few simple drawings. The variation in outcome when building these pieces is ridiculous. There are endless possibilities and occasionally I come back to working this way and want to explore it more in so that can delve textile and digitally printed fabrics. Stay tuned - it will happen.
