My work is created intuitively. I begin by taking a line for a walk, allowing an image to develop as it wishes. I want to be surprised by whatever manifests as I apply simple materials to a simple surface. I generally feel that my work is most successful when it reveals new secrets over time in response to a viewer’s mood. An image is complete when I feel I have exhausted the possibilities of the surface and transformed it into something a little bit magical which even the most casual viewer can appreciate as a well-crafted object.
