My creative process is more about the tunnel than the light at the end of it. Being totally engaged in making art pulls me into my studio each day: This is where the magic happens.

Claude Debussy’s quote informs my creations: “The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.” The fewer components I use in a piece, the more complete it is. My goal is finished works that achieve an austere elegant simplicity.

An additional influence, the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, accepts the transience and imperfection of all things in life. The materials I use are left in their ‘found state’ to honor the flawed and blemished beauty of their natural surfaces. My light-handed touch preserves the allure and mystique of an unknown past.
