Flux is a constant metaphor in my work. I begin with no reference, generating marks and shapes that flow from an innate visual language. Thought and no thought, balance and imbalance, calm and anxiety—all are allowed as a part of the process.
There are many layers in my work, and most paintings have had several incarnations. I am not immortal, but in the process and painting, I find a sense of connection that transcends time, often taking me out of the body... and into The Floating World.
"We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep." —Shakespeare, The Tempest, Act Four
