For part of each year, I work as an artist for the University of Chicago’s Epigraphic Survey, drawing
the reliefs of ancient temples in Luxor, Egypt. I have also been called on to draw new finds, like the
coffins found in the newly discovered KV 63 tomb, in the Valley of the Kings. In my own art, I use this
source and move it to another realm – translating this ancient stimulus into contemporary artwork.
