"There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about."    ~ Helen Frankenthaler

I used to be a full time letterpress printer which requires exactness, patience and acute attention to detail. Although I still possess, to some degree, these fine qualities I now prefer to work quickly and spontaneously. The materials and tools that I use in any given work will influence the work. I allow the materials to react with each other experimenting with unexpected yet anticipated results. I resist fussiness yet find myself fussing. I resist designing yet find myself contemplating the color wheel. I do not want to know where and why I am making the next step, yet I am aware that I am always calculating this to some degree. Without this ambiguity I doubt I would find myself driven to go into the studio the following day.
