My approach to working is very intuitive; usually there are no sketches to work from and little predetermined choice of color. The result is the physical consequence of a dialog between myself and my materials while I am working.  I consider myself a formalist, and as such constantly face the struggle to create compositional balance. The process : making marks, applying materials, responding to each action with a reaction toward a profound end. I am a maker of things and I seek the rarity in the profound.
