I continue to obsess on the idea of picture writing. There is something about using drawing and painting speedily and physically that sidesteps preconceptions to get to the nub of a thought or emotion that excites me. I'm drawn more and more to art being what remains after an action or event.This year I will probably concentrate on a live drawing or/and installation. (2015)

Last year for the Studio Tour I presented Drawing By The Yard, which I then sold by the foot. This year another card carrying member of the The Bruxist Collective, an art movement of some stature, will be on hand to present Drawing By The Yard and Why I should be President, a Manifesto.

Along with instant art created on the day other artifacts, artworks, objects and a potted history of the collective will be available for purchase. (2016)
