I’ve been an artist all my life. I don’t remember a time when I didn’t pick up an art material to express myself. The same childlike impulse remains, drawing straight from my imagination. I use my brush, knife and fingers, sometimes all at once, and they get covered with thick acrylic, drippy washes, glazes, slips, stains, gritting mediums and dirt. To maintain the confidence and freedom of a child to let whatever happens next happen is always my goal, always the challenge.
