I work with many different materials, so much so that I don’t know, now, what I’ll use next. Sometimes my intuition makes a decision easy, sometimes something catches my eye and I get an idea. Sometimes an idea occurs and pretty soon it takes shape in my mind and grows into a vague visual with an obvious choice of medium. When I teach, my students work for themselves but at the same time influence me, like I do them. A poem, a line in the news, a discussion with friends, the (natural) world…all and many more are a source of inspiration.
