Artist's Statement

Creating art is a combination of incredibly intense and sublime moments, none of which you control. Its my job to show up everyday ready to work and while it can feel like slogging thru deep mud with only a vague notion of the direction you are going- continuing to plod is necessary to end w a result that I would call art. Its analogues to fishing… you do all the things your supposed to do like, get up really early, sit quietly on the rivers edge, watch the waters surface and with a leap of faith – cast your line. Once you have done all this, its up to the gods weather you catch a fish or a tire. If you’re good at your sport, you may be able to ‘feel’ what your coming up with, hence the Daimones. But a large part of the process is ‘doing the work’ and taking a leap of faith.
I often say- I’m not strong or courageous, but I don’t mind climbing out on a limb. In some strange way I’m comfortable there
