Artist Statement
              This new body of work has embraced more of the intuitive both in terms of process and in terms of subject matter.   I am trying to work with the attitude that many sources and types of subject matter can influence me as I work and that this information can be deployed in a nonlinear fashion.  There are no set rules about color, composition, style or subject matter. Through the process of making, the works are allowed to find what they need to exist.
