"Light has the power to create, define, and solidify; or leave in shadow that which we believe to be real."

"The major challenge for me in art is to keep under control the tyranny of a logical mind. The spirit that moves me is capricious, unruly and irreverent. Most of my work grows out of intuitive impulse — the rest gets underway by just playing."
