“I would say that I’ve tried, in my work, to find out how to live life — tried to explore what our existence really is and the meaning of it.” Martin Scorsese

"Novelists are like fur trappers. They disappear into the north woods for months or years at a time, sometimes never to reemerge, giving in to despair out there, or going native (taking a real job, in other words), or catching their legs in their own traps and bleeding out, silently, into the snow. The lucky ones return, laden with pelts."

"I will close with what Meadow once told me about being an artist. It is partly a confidence game. And partly magic. But to make something you also need to be a gleaner. What is a gleaner? Well, it is a nice word for a thief, except you take what no one wants. Not just unusual ideas or things. You look closely at the familiar to discover what everyone else overlooks or ignores or discards." Dana Spiotta from Innocents and Others

"They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night" Edgar Allen Poe
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.
