Artists are often asked how they begin a piece or what inspires you. The world around, a sound, a thought, or any number of random circumstances can be inspirational to me. Usually it is a rather simple process.

  • Horizontal or vertical?
  • Thick line or thin?
  • Look at the paper
  • Decide where to begin.

This is the mantra that goes through my head as inspiration strikes to create the art that you see.  The pen guides me across the blank page. The lines unite to create the piece. My eye sees what needs to be there and I follow the pen until it says this artistic moment has come to an end.
