I make art to explore that which I observe and experience, but may have difficulty understanding or articulating; the process of creating a piece helps me to achieve clarification.  Often, the motive behind the work does not present itself until I am well into a series, while other times I use my time in the studio to explore a concrete idea or a recent observation.  

I am influenced by a rather broad list of topics which include nature and science, human energy and interaction, and the idea of personal strength and power (or the lack thereof).  Introspection, self-evaluation, and the desire for a life lived in balance are present in much of my work.

I believe that it is sometimes necessary to follow a path even in the absence of an obvious destination; as a result my work tends to be process rather than product-oriented.
