I don't know what I am thinking until I see what I have made; pencil-paint-camera.....

Like my life-my work should not be stagnant and should reflect-like life-change, although challenging easy categorization. 

How I work is replicating unconscious recordings of information, blurring the line between painting and drawing while maintaining a balance of process-surface-calligraphic mark making and text: scrawls over various grounds and layers of information and language.

My content relies on journals, nine to five work notes and information, endless scribblings and drawings marrying immediacy of instinctive new ideas and older information. I often learn what I am thinking after I see what I have made .... .

For me this process is theatre, where I put together the information to create a story. In this theatre I am the director, the actor and the viewer all at the same time.

Louise Bourgeois said:
“It is not so much where my motivation comes from but rather how it manages to survive”

Albert Giacometti: "I no longer work for anything but the sensation I have while working"

Both artist said it much more eloquently than I.
