I've created a series of drawings that are driven not by results but by process. Each of these drawings is made using the same ink, the same pen, the same unrelenting process. The results reveal themselves to be reminders of my walks and runs in the woods. The straight trunks making blurred lines that suggest motion, space, and time — a DNA image of being in the woods.

This exhibition is a unique opportunity for faculty, staff, and patients to showcase individual creative expression through the arts. The exhibit is dedicated to the memory of Bernett L. Johnson, Jr., M.D., former Chief Medical Officer of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Participating in Open Studios this year was harder than previous years. My energy was low and I had to call in help from my good friends and fellow artists. They did so much hard work for me and I am grateful.

One of the most helpful ways to show my work was my exhibition of 366 iPhone project in the public space @HBHQ. I was lucky to have a good amount of new work to show and decided to fill my worktable with finished drawings and works in progress.

I was also able to display my 366 iPhone catalog/book that was just published.

During Philadelphia Open Studio Tours in October this year I decided to show some of my newest drawings. This included six ink drawings on Yupo synthetic paper that I made in the lead up to my show in June.

I'm so pleased to say that one of these drawings Ascertain has been purchased by Debroah Ward for her collection.

Debroah Ward serves on the Board of Vox Populi Gallery, currently as president. She is an avid arts supporter and collector of local Philadelphia artists.
