Pouring Mountains series transpose the urge and energy of my Compulsive Skin Picking into visceral charcoal drawings. These textural mountains are a radical rethinking of the disorder, the physical act of drawing helps release tension from my body, through my hands and onto the paper. I create several a week in my studio, as well as in front of audiences in galleries and for exhibitions.
