My work reflects my psyche as well as both the good and the bad around and within me. There is no good enough and there is no perfect. There is only complete. My process is very improvisational. I start by letting my imagination flow and I follow it. I don’t know how I will get to my complete or what my complete will be. I don’t strive for perfection in my art. I strive for being. Existence precedes essence. My work can’t have a meaning before it exists.
