Starting on a new piece is super exciting for me. Although I may have a preconceived notion of creating something unique and exciting that will intrigue myself and the viewer, ultimately the process creates its own flow, and encapsulates, solidifies or impregnates itself into the medium whether it’s painting or sculpture. As I transfer the energy from my subconscious into the physical world – regardless of the medium – the form and structure manifests itself through each and every move until I believe a balance has been reached. Nobody truly perceives abstract art the same way; it’s what their subconscious projects. This is why art moves people in such a fascinating way. Whether they are seeing my work for the first time, or whether it’s a piece they have viewed several times, it’s entirely up to them. Like love, it can happen at first sight or develop over time.
