The mantra that most often arises during my art practice is 'allow yourself to be surprised.' With this at the forefront, I follow a spontaneous exploration with my materials. Whether I'm in a phase where I'm working with paint, paper, cardboard, wood, bone, plastic, pencil, metal, etc. I'm curious to see what relationships are formed through this process.
It's much the same with my photographs. I do not set out to capture an image. I simply allow myself to be open to what may not have been noticed and I then take the time to see it in its beauty and, perhaps, its strangeness.
