Events, ideas and music are sometimes a starting point for my work. Color and texture are paramount and I allow each piece to develop and morph as it will. Whether painting, creating a collage or making sculpture, it is a similar voyage. Accidental results are embraced and I welcome the magic which often happens during the process.
