Artist Statement

Though I've been drawing and writing for as long as I can remember, music is the medium that has influenced me the most. I love the thought of an album being a collection that encapsulates a period of ideas, work and life into a tidy package, allowing the artist to work through a creative goal then move on to the next. Taken together, multiple albums become a systematic organization of a life's work; a collection of songs defines one album, and the collection of albums defines the artist. This led to my newest project, a yearly publication overtly titled Album, as an homage to that concept. Setting out to annually produce a new body of work separate from previous bodies has allowed me to redefine, for myself, the idea of producing books and series. Rather than having the work in each book be the same in theme or medium, the collection of books themselves is the series. The three pieces released here as prints can be taken as singles from this year's Album.
