I engage in active meditation as I work with organic, sinuous, rhythmic, flowing imagery creating visual poetry from the collective images, thinking around and through an initial concept on many levels of consciousness, in free association with the present moment in whichever medium I am working — painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, poetry, collage
. The world is indefinable, unknowable, strange, funny, horrifying, beautiful. My work is conceptual exploration through visual creation. I make things by hand in direct contact with material.
