"Previously I have been more deliberate and directive in the process of creating my paintings and mixed media works. Now with my monotype work, I find myself using greater freedom of expression: almost like an outsider, I watch my hand move as it manipulates printing ink. I try not to interfere with the process by my thoughts and conscious efforts.
"I keep looking at different forms and shapes and their outlines and surfaces, both natural and man-made. To really see with clarity---in the deepest sense of the meaning---I try to look without forming an opinion, analyzing, or placing what I see into a known context."
