I tend to delve (as an artist) and look beneath. I must scrape away at what is there, to find what's underneath....(in my view) the deeper truth.
I search for meaning in what I do....it's not just the act of painting - it's Why this? Why now? And what is the message am I trying to convey?
This mirrors my (day job) as a headhunter as well. I interview most of my days away, asking question after question. When I hit an area that needs more digging......I dig deeper.
I usually do get to the bottom of things.
That's my "process".

It is a global piece to which nature - plants, animals, and minerals - have contributed their beauty.
A comprehensive collaboration of countries and people have participated in the spinning, weaving, cutting, winding, and spooling of these fabrics, producing a creation as complex as the world around us.
This was my artist statement.
The connection of one to all.
This has led me to believe that
is not only
