As are all who have found their calling, I am on a lifelong exploration into what I love. My drive to create is both solemn and jubilant. It sends me into isolation then coaxes me out to share with others. Texture is an obsession, empty space fills me with peace, representationalism calls me but abstraction finds its way in one way or another. 

Now is the phase for work. Time must be offered at the altar of mastery in hopes that one day, years from now, I feel that symbiosis of conscious and subconscious in making, a deeper understanding of craft. Learning necessitates creation. Creation warms my soul.
