I plunge into each piece of work as if it were an adventure into the unknown.  With no specific outcome in mind, I respond to the changes in the picture as I explore and interact with materials by layering paint and paper, scratching, sanding and marking, creating open spaces, altering and adjusting.  I move between intuition and logic: chaos and order.  Being aware and open, taking risks with the materials, as well as the struggle itself allows me to be in the moment to reflect and interpret a history that evolves on the canvas before my eyes.
