COMMON ARTIST STATEMENT

                               “Being creative is not so much the desire to do something as the listening to that which wants to be done:  the dictation of the materials.”

                                                                                                                   -Anni Albers

In these disparate but parallel works, I had two common aims:

-to listen to “the dictation of the materials,” allowing the materials to express themselves.

-to express an interior state of tranquility, sensuality, order, and luminosity, a healed state where contrasts exist but schisms do not.
