What discipline do you primarily work in?
Mostly I work in mixed media – 2D and 3D.
much like life; you don’t always know what lies around the corner. Usually at the start of a project I have no idea what the finished work will look like. Much depends on: my mind space, various materials collected, which box of gathered materials I open in the studio, and, when the urge to create something new occurs. It takes a long time to look at things in nature, objects, relationships, what is said what is left unsaid – it all adds up and, hopefully, in the end of it all comes together. The techniques I ultimately use will flow out of all these combined elements.
