In the creation and expansion of mind, art is essential.
Rooted in an exploration of unconscious mind, improvisation is the hallmark of my art making. Always the willingness to yield my idea, my approach is with an open mind without overbearing, preconceived ideas to get in the way----at least not too often. Experimentation, chance, recognition, instinct and development of rapport with the material; that is what's happening, such are the ingredients here. The work begins to take on life of its own and dialogue with it takes place. It's at that moment the unexpected happens. That's what excites me and keeps me in the game.
