“my work exists through a process of being lived, it being comprised of innumerable individual handmade marks which require total emersion and concentration, time, existence and the work becoming fused. There is no other way to produce the work except for a depth of engagement requiring the abandonment of self and this process opens the door to infinity enabling reach outside the physical. For me art must transcend the material.”

“Line can record a small gesture or can theoretically extent to infinity. Within my work, the small vertical lines record intense concentration and I believe that the energy of the action of making a line is imbedded in the resulting mark. The accumulation of such marks become a vibrant field of energy. The working process and existence merge and there is no separation between life and work and the ultimate natural force of existence.”
