Painting for me has a vastness and open endedness to it that is both exciting and
daunting. Each artist is responsible for setting the goals and parameters in which
to work. The problems you try to solve are ones that you have set for yourself or
which come up along the way.
The journey includes elements of surprise and discovery in the search for
personal imagery and symbolism.
