PHILOSOPHY

My art works are products of the media I ingest. I think of the information I absorb as fodder for imagination. The richer the information, the more complex the results. The most intriguing aspect of the creative process is the formation of ideas. I believe in part it is our responsibility to seek out quality information for a healthy imagination, but I also believe our intentions are equally important. Our intentions invite the Muse. They color and shape her guidance.

"If a man comes to the door of poetry untouched by the madness of the Muses, believing that technique alone will make him a good poet, he and his sane compositions never reach perfection, but are utterly eclipsed by the performances of the inspired madman."

- Socrates (399 BC, Classical Athens)
