Sometimes one of my pieces comes together quickly and other times it may take years to find that single missing piece that brings it to fruition. There is no sketching or drawing or any planning out of a piece-just a spontaneous playing with objects, shapes, textures, patterns, and colors. Then, as suddenly as it began, the piece is complete. It's a process that has been evolving for thirty plus years. When we learn to realize the uniqueness and beauty in everything, then we can understand that nothing is ever ordinary.
