    Artist Statement

    Throughout my adult life I have sought to go willingly into the unknown. This is a continual process between the struggle against my own vulnerability and my ability to relax enough to allow the necessary un-integration needed to use my imagination, and to therefore see possibilities. 

    I don’t know where my life, or my work, will take me. Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don’t. Sometimes questions have no final answer. Sometimes things are in complete conflict and yet manage to hang together.

    I simply try to listen. I respond. I play. I express, hide, repress, awaken, retreat, and express, again. Each mark, each gesture, is intuitive - a moment of experimentation that begets another. Each piece of work is the unknown communicating itself into being.
