Each line, each shape, is a representation of a moment in time, a feeling, an expression. As each mark reveals itself, so does my reaction to what has been created. It's a reflection of something bigger than the artwork, it's an inner mirror; a communication with the self. What does adjusting a mark represent? How does control or perfection add to the natural creative process? What patterns am I attached to; behaviorally or on paper? As I draw, my "patterns" present themselves, line by line, row by row. For me, the art of the piece isn't the visual result, but the tiny moments of enlightenment as I break through limiting habits, and enter into a new realm, both visually and energetically.
