"I am constantly searching for a narrative in my practice, even though my work is primarily abstract; a story that is suggested, or hinted at, and is almost always something that is simple, routine, or unremarkable. I’m striving for it to do what good poetry does—it gets at the beauty in the things that surround us and elevates these things to a place that is poetic. Like most people I can’t describe how that is, or even what it is, but that is what I strive for in my small lyrically abstract pieces."
