Walking and drawing along Toronto's sidewalks and through its parks, I create urban scenes built up of elements encountered separately over time and space. As I walk, I work with gel pen, different papers, found pigments from sources such as mud and tree bark, and water from sources such as falling rain and snow, puddles, and storefront air conditioners. Later, in the studio, graphite shading may be added, and the paper is tinted with tea and sometimes wax.

This "walking drawing" technique developed spontaneously in 2006, uniting four interests: human beings, the urban environment, walking and drawing. Spontaneity remains key. I never know what's going to happen next.
