Each piece progresses with no end in sight, no schematic, no plan, it is a very divergent rather than convergent process. In the beginning my spirit or frame of mind may take me in a particular direction, in the midst of its creation, a piece may speak to me and beckon from me, and when it is fully bloomed it calls forth a thought, a reflection, a feeling, a memory, a story, and it is named.

"Everyone wants to understand painting. Why is there no attempt to understand the song of the birds."

(Pablo Picasso)




"When I hesitate, I do not paint. When I paint, I do not hesitate."

(Jean-Paul Riopelle)
