Paper Falls Series

This collection of work was finished spring of 2016, just a month after loosing my home to a fire. It was an emotional series/commitment to complete. My entire community circled around me and inspired me to continue. One particular was local artist Paula Willis Jones, she completely funded this show providing me with everything I needed despite having just lost all my possessions.

 I chose to circle back and include four sketches from 15 years ago that were salvaged from a a portfolio stuffed in the garage that didn't fall to fire. They're from when I  Studied art at Oklahoma State University. It was then that I first stepped out of instruction and started drawing what I heard rather than what I saw. My line found me, and I it.
