When I started blogging my drawings I was working in small bound books (Moleskines), one drawing a day: bound drawings that somehow maintained a daily narrative, inseparable from their collective physical context. As time went on, the drawings became more complex and more enmeshed in an on-going thought process. They start one day and finish whenever they finish and I work in several sketchbooks at the same time, of various sizes. And the pages are now removable.
I work with internal (anatomy, a continuing fascination) and external (flux of experience and environment). And, over the last 10 years I’ve been experimenting with in-image captions, more and more in Spanish.

I realize I'm in the middle (or somewhere) of a series. It's snuck up on me: the Reading Man . Starring my husband Stephen. Stephen reading is the true constant in our lives. When he's awake he's more often reading than not. Now I should backtrack and try to tag all the drawings that pertain.)
