CREATING WORKS WITH BOTH AESTHETIC AND TECHNICAL INTEGRITY THAT SPEAK DIRECTLY AND MEANINGFULLY TO OTHERS IS AN ONGOING GOAL.
Tension always exists between the concepts I want to express and my technical capability to execute them.
The greatest joys come in those moments in working on a project where intent and execution blend seamlessly, intuitively.

A Word to the Writer/Artist
Inhabit the inner life,
draw in its scent, draw up from its wells,
descend into each crevice.
Attend, with humility of the novice
to what spruce and birches tell.
Sink into moss, your tread wide.
Take refuge in the inner life,
let time and heart and distance
dull the shards of argument;
run your finger along the belly of content.
Separate form from substance.
Gather strength: prepare to testify.
Share out your inner life,
let secrets rise like worms after rain.
Carry the spark from one camp to the next,
teach from the sacred text;
reveal beauty, and the legacy of stain.
Donate remembrance, sharp as a knife.
