  1. The departure point for my work comes from myself, my relationships, and my surroundings. The layers of meaning that come through my work, the sense of a source other than I can name, are always a bit of a surprise to me.
    Since the birth of my son in 1978 my desire to make marks in time; to track my journey, have become important to me. Perhaps it is the desire to leave a record, that which I cannot put in words, for him, myself, and others. I fantasize of cave paintings and how they were a part of daily life, how they recorded, mourned, and celebrated a tribes’ days and experiences. I look for that balance of elegance and crudeness in my work and the daily reference in the ‘doing’ of the work.
