“Creating something is like starting a journey in an unknown place without a map or compass. The objects created become the milestones or ‘you are here’ reference points – creating a personal map in retrospect.

I have always worked in series, sometimes my themes running parallel sometimes not seemingly connected. At present I am concerned with chaos from order, order from chaos. Spontaneity is the key to the endlessly exciting process of creativity.”
