"Life passes into pages if it passes into anything. I like to write about certain things that if they are not written about are not going to exist."- James Salter Nick Paumgarten says about Salter- "You come away from his work wondering if you should have lived more, even if living more, in his work, often leads to ruin."

"The object of art is not to make salable pictures. It is to save yourself."
THE WORDS: snippets i've read, overheard, or realized- each one adding another facet to my understanding of life
THE IMAGES: snapshots or my collage paintings on wood panel, these are an ongoing response to things i see and feel, they involve layers, erosion, and chance and allow for more spontaneity than my large sculptural works.
