don't preconceive exactly how a piece will look
and then construct it. Rather, I sink into my feeling for the place,
the day, the weather, the temperatures, the smells, the sounds,
and try to make that sensory collection translate
colors and shapes into something that might call forth
those feelings in another person.
I want to evoke the mystery of our natural world
and our human place inside it.
In my experience, all art has to offer
a somewhat different trip
a new or at least a compelling experience with each encounter.
This means artwork has to be complex while seeming simple.
