Sketchbook Journal

I frequently find that people are as interested in the process by which my paintings come together as they are by the imagery itself. The work almost always begins with an ongoing process of collecting imagery, almost like collecting the words for a poem. I often think back to the refrigerator magnet poetry, which encourages you to imbue words with additional meaning by selection and connection.

All of these images are stored in my sketchbook, which I have with me almost wherever I go, and I make connections between those images, reinterpret them, describe and explore them in the books.
