The act of expression is never really the same from one work to the next, there are always shifting thoughts and energies fighting for focus and attention. The vision is never the same either; it never has been. There is always something new pulling at the source, requesting to be created. Underlying elements of the self, forming in dimensions of the spirit come to reside in the creation, along with more worldly energies of desire, material pursuits and glorification. A struggle between the physical side of life and the ethereal is where the energy of my work manifests. It sometimes leans more in one direction than the other, but somewhere in the middle small fires are created. All works of art have an energy to them which resonate differently depending on the viewer.
