Mentally I chase after images with a butterfly net, always careful to preserve what I’ve captured – not wanting to pin it down – I never commit to anything right away. I store it in a jar and wait till the time is just right, then I free it, usually with another image that was imprisoned also. Once these liberated images come together, they have a will of their own. Then another free flight and they begin to tell their own story. My work has always felt like visual story telling, stories I can’t tell verbally, narratives that speak to each person in a different way. Humor, satire, whimsy foreboding, social comment and spirituality are all themes that come into play.
