I am fortunate. I get to do what makes me incredibly happy. I could not think of anything that I would rather be doing then creating art. It allows me to speak in a language of my own, honed by time with the aid of various tools within the mediums I am engaged with.
Every day I make a mark, then another, and yet one more, ad infinitum. And while these marks may not be within the confines of the same piece or even the same medium, they are related to each other. They are a visual and intellectual source of history and knowledge for me. To try and comprehend how and why they change the visual field by their interaction is my job. I translate their rhythm, color, weight and texture so they hold together as co-dependent marks that maintain their own construct. I am not content to play the same keys over and over again, but rather I like to push them beyond the tensions and relationships felt in the last piece and see where they take me. I control their visual presence, which in turn allows the viewer to translate it into their own language.
