With an initial concept and visual in mind, each finished work transforms from what I imagined or intended to express at the start. I work in a series of layers, responding to each layer as I consider how each decision would affect the already standing parts and reconfigure each element’s existence and relevance. Even the hidden layers are there, unseen by the viewer but necessary and meaningful as it informs the subsequent layers and had purpose at one point in the process. The work is finished when it has thoroughly challenged me, excites me, and sits well with me. However, as time passes, it may become evident that it is no longer finished and that I must return to work on it.
