I believe that making art is a multi-layered opportunity. Being an artist requires courage to believe in yourself enough to enter the studio, to push the work, and to destroy it in order to move on and expand. I have learned that I am better off expanding my experience over than narrowing it.
While in my studio, I pay attention to my mental dialogue which is sometimes disquieting chatter that I attempt to suppress, while at other times it hums along in the background. What gets made is a combination of everything I’ve seen and experienced.
