I use drawing in several ways. As a direct form of expression drawing is important in the development of ideas and fundamental to the process of making sculpture. It’s a great way to learn about animals; to trace their movement with a line and to explore their anatomy.
Drawing is also a vehicle for communicating ideas as in the 2006 series called insinuous. These drawings are of shape-shifters, part-snake/part-human. Startling and comical, they attempt to address anthropomorphizing language used to describe snakes.
