PEN DRAWING: ‘Changing Directions’ July – November 2020

This drawing began as an outlet for all the challenges and changes in direction I was experiencing in 2020. Starting in July, I felt compelled to draw in order to express something of the constantly shifting ground beneath me. Through using simple shapes built together in unpredictable ways, I shaped the piece. It was very much an improvisation – as I would draw without consideration for where it was going. Rather, each session was as expression of my daily or weekly experience and an unleashing of what was currently in my body. Here is just a small sample of the development of this piece.
