In this series of low relief drawings called, "Strung Together," I use traditional drawing tools such as pencil and charcoal with the addition of cold wax and oil stick. In this work, I explore the interconnectedness of color, layering, and mark making, while play with the formal elements of design. Through this work, I give visual form to the invisible ways in which we humans are "Strung Together" with one another when we are removed from one another either by space or time.
