Each of my inkblots is an experiment, of timing, and of balance. They are not created to represent anything - although they may happen to do so, giving them a free-flowing quality. They capture a mixture of control and spontaneity. The reactions between the water, ink and paper always produce a unique harmony of value, color, and edge. Intuition guides my process, informed by trial and examination. I relish in the ways that each piece progresses. For me, the beauty of the inkblot is in the moment of its creation; I invite viewers to trust their own interpretation.
