I create these ink environments like accidents. I have little control of the environment that emerges and then I search for something that lives there. They are an exciting surprise in an unknown landscape.

I begin in a state of not knowing where I am going, constantly asking “what if?” As a piece progresses, I aim for satisfying relationships between spontaneity and intentionality, freedom and structure, chaos and rationality.
