The departure point for my work comes from myself, my relationships, and my surroundings. The layers of meaning that come through my work, the sense of a source other than I can name, are always a bit of a surprise to me.
Since the birth of my son in 1978 my desire to make marks in times and to track my journey, have become important to me. Perhaps it is the desire to leave a record, that which I cannot put in words, for him, myself, and others. I fantasize of cave paintings and how they were a part of daily life, how they recorded, mourned, and celebrated a tribes’ days and experiences. I look for that balance of elegance and crudeness in my work and the daily reference in the ‘doing’ of the work.
