I regard my drawings as Culture/Nature dialectics. After all, we live and work in communities, play in them, love in them; they shape us . . . they give meaning to our lives. My images of communities are vignettes - unique, carefully assembled sonnets. Through them we see ourselves, sometimes at our best but, very often, we don’t look so good.
