A quote from the VoyageDenver interview: I’m known for creating subtle, obsessive works of pattern that integrate light in one way or another. The kind of work that people look at, hesitate as they eye me, and then say, “You’re crazy!” “How many miles of thread?” (83) “How many dots?” (461,000). I like to create works that repeat a singular form until that singular form becomes part of a larger whole taking on a life of its own. Creating this work is a kind of meditation. I often work with tools that have very particular limitations, like an X-acto knife or a calligraphy pen (a nib dipped in ink) that can only be moved in certain ways. These limitations create a structure to the approach. Then I try to find as much variety and freedom as I can within that structure. I enjoy becoming a vehicle for the material to actualize itself. The activity is demanding, repetitive, and dare I say, monotonous. But I continue because I find the results entirely satisfying to look at.
