“The words meticulous and spontaneous would go a long way toward describing my approach to art. More definitively, I would describe it as a desire to meld symmetry with asymmetry. My motivation to make art comes from my insatiable need to create. Like most artists - creating is like eating, sleeping and breathing... I simply must do it! There is also the craving to continually find deeper and deeper expression through my work. When people respond positively to my work, I somehow feel that they are responding to the real me, or at least something closer to my essence. And, a negative response can often times foster inner strength as well as outward growth. My best ideas are almost always born in the midst of mistakes and failure.
I find abstraction, and especially non-representational abstraction, to have a never- ending, ever- increasing allure. I believe abstract forms to be the nuts and bolts of the so called Primordial Soup, and the foundation of all possible actions and reactions. Therefore, I must conclude, that all things which would be considered representational, or familiar to the minds of mortals - had to have their origin in some ambiguous form. For this and other reasons, I find it difficult to imagine ever growing weary of the infinite possibilities of abstraction”
