As artists, we hope to leave our mark on the world. My book, Marking Time, reflects my experience of life flying by, faster and faster. I relish the slow activity of making careful marks and the direct, physical interaction of my hand with paint and paper. I like to make my own paint and ink. Marking Time contains fragments of paintings, prints and drawings which stretch back through my years in the studio. It combines vintage papers I found 30 years ago in my old Chicago neighborhood, with calligraphy practice sheets from the last year. We make marks, and they mark us.
