A Shift in Silence is a body of work that emerged because of a key shift in my life. Using the formal components of line, shape, and value, I create a space representing an intimate moment in time. Physically, the medium can be any material, but I process all of this as an expression of line. Each piece shares the commonality of lines and lineage, while the layering embodies the record of my relationships from the past that directly affect the present. The abstraction and unpredictability within my own relationships require openness and vulnerability. This honest dialogue sustains and informs my artistic process. My hand drawn lines converge with my relationships, in that each is unique in design, purpose, and function: some lines are meant to be crossed, some lines are meant to stand firm, and some lines are meant to be erased and not remain.
