"I'm interested in areas left untouched, negative space, tension between two forms. Organic and playful shapes, many of which I find in nature, grab my attention. A sense of humor, which is abundant in my life, certainly shows up in much of my work. Overall, I'm interested in art where you can see the mark of the hand. The gouged line, the scratch mark, the brush stroke there is energy there, evidence of the artist left behind."
