The conscious intention and process of my work involves the experimentation with and exploration of the relationships between space, color, movement, light and form. I begin an intuitive process, reacting to my materials, tools and moods. Each action leads to the next. My process is one of forging forward, stepping back, designing and redesigning, constructing and deconstructing, thinking and rethinking. The result, each time, occurs with a certain clarity bringing excitement, anticipation, satisfaction and understanding.

As my process proceeds physically, aesthetically and technically, I realize the connection between my conscious aesthetic intention and the subconscious references to my personal history and my continuing journey. It is my hope for the viewer to discover personal references within my work, layer those upon mine, thus allowing each work to exist in many incarnations. The melding of image and form create a memorial to my process, my experience and to the potential of the viewers'.
