"I am constantly searching for a narrative in my work, even though it is all purely abstract; a story that is suggested, or hinted at, and is almost always something that is simple, routine, or unremarkable, yet does 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."
