Currently, my studio practice serves as an essential reprieve from the "new normal" of the on-going pandemic. One of the most significant changes to my daily routine is increased screen time. I perceive the digital screens of my laptop and phone as paradoxes; these screens are portals to information and people that allow me to be intellectually and emotionally connected while being physically detached. 

My work in my studio is the opposite of this type of interaction; it is tangible, tactile, and direct. Actions in my studio practice involve drawing, printing, cutting, arranging, and folding. Being online feels like inhabiting boundless space, but my prints and drawings have clearly defined edges, and they eventually reach a point where they are finished and can be set aside. For the foreseeable future, my studio practice is a grounding presence in a world that feels very unpredictable.
