I love decorativeness and the possibility that decoration can transcend itself; I use the word "transcend" cautiously.
My work is self-referential (about itself). I try to capture some sense of an experience I have had, or one I would like to have.
I make art with the intent of clarifying for myself the meaning of my original vision. I want art that is beautiful, humorous and
somehow self-evident. The art should be its own justification.
Objects, materials or simple actions from my surroundings present themselves as possibilities for art making. The inspiration comes
first, then I try to locate its meaning.
