Artist Statement
noctuary (noun) 1. a record of what passes in the night

After nightfall, when the activities of the day give way to quiet stillness, I sense the stirring of all that resides most powerfully within me. Out of darkness, inky things surface that by the subtle illumination of starlight and moonlight, begin to take on shapes that I can touch.
