"I usually get the inspiration for a piece long before it’s started.  I think about it, sketch it and play with the idea.  Seldom does the finished piece resemble these ideas/sketches exactly but somehow it prepares me to work.  I begin with a time of centering and spiritual connection.  I’ve found if I skip this step the piece will pay for it in the end.  Once begun, I let the piece dictate the direction it will take.  Working and looking and deciding what is needed next.  It’s a strange phenomenon that while working on a piece I am often also thinking about the next piece.  It’s like my brain has to process the ideas for awhile before it can be brought into reality, then once the work is started, it is completed by the subconscious, working intuitively, organically, and the conscious brain moves on to thinking about the next project.  I incorporate a process that I developed, of meticulously applying small “droplets” of wax, one-by-one to the surface of the painting and exploring the relationship of these drips to the spaces in between them.  The overall effect produces a tactile pattern that invites the viewer to touch.  This process is, at the same time effortless and meditative, challenging and slow, I’m always excited by it."
