“This is the first in my ‘Fatherhood’ series, an ongoing collection of work reflecting what it is like to be a parent. In this piece, I wanted to capture the feeling of wondrous potential—the whole world is out that window for her to discover and all things are possible.
Working with road maps, I make ink drawings on them and then use a craft knife to carefully cut away the empty spaces around the drawing and the roads. I draw on maps because for me, maps are symbols of connection and exploration. Roads take us places and connect us with others.”
