My world of images has a clearly defined aesthetic origin and is based partly on 18 years of experience in clothing design and partly on a lifelong love of the picture.
I do not dwell on a particular style or movement; instead I rely to a certain extent on complete improvisation. I like to embrace accidents and contingencies and work with them. There’s a lot of trial and error but there is a general pattern to what I do.
For all of my work, no figure, statement, or message is forced upon the viewer; instead all that remains is color, contrast and balance.
A lot of the time what I thought I was going to make ends up totally different.
I guess this absorption is the essence of art.
"Beauty and perfection are the same. They never occur without happiness" (Agnes Martin)
It is the journey through its twists and turns where the beauty unfolds – not the destination or end result.
