“I’m interested in a lot of different things. I love writhing, growing, organic forms of all sorts. They are infectious. They have ruled the Earth for billions of years. I love juicy colors, and voluptuous forms, and sensuous surfaces that invite touching. I love clean, graceful, precise lines, and edges so sharp you can almost shave with them. I want my pieces to sizzle your senses, to delight and dazzle you. I also want my pieces to be fun, innocent, and a little tongue in cheek.”
