Artist Statement
“I start with an idea, usually something very simple, like how two shapes might go together or how a line might touch a shape. And then I let the piece grow from there. I try many things that don’t work, reject them, try something else, react and so on, each step suggesting the next step. Eventually it works itself into a finished piece.

This ‘giving over’ to the piece can be daunting. It makes you struggle. It doesn’t allow you the comfort of the known. But I see it as exciting-knowing that my only limitations are what I give myself permission to do.”
