"I enjoy creating art; I enjoy the technical challenges. But more importantly, art lets me share my explorations and enjoyment of the world, and learn how other people see it.
A work develops, not from obvious intuitions, but from the more subtle, gentler ones. These gentler intuitions become complete when skill and technique moves freely to into the possibilities imagined.
Art a public version of the compassion and empathy that occurs between people who are close. It creates the possibility for motion, without dictating the direction. Art's appreciation depends on the freedom of the mind and heart. This is how we go from conventional comprehension to a shared understanding."
