I use a variety of techniques and materials because I love exploring. Multi-tasking and serial thinking can be practiced to a fault. Therefore I am consciously aware that my ability to limit and select is a facet of my art making. You know the part when an artist simply sits staring at works in progress, that's the attempt to take paths of possibilities in my mind and to eliminate or add elements. Yes, that does appear to be nothing but daydreaming yet the emptying of mind can be quite productive.
I utilize vintage materials as memories of past histories both in content and the pure beauty of aged materials. My additions can be thought of as a concert between those pasts and my motions in space creating connection and pattern.
