With my recent work I hope to shed light on my creative process, which starts with a few random marks and ends up as a finished piece. One question I ask myself often when I draw is “is it done yet?” There are so many possibilities that I think of when I’m working that the answer to this question is hardly ever clear. Or, at least, it’s not the same answer for each piece. In my version of the creative process, I’ve discovered that “done” is not an accurate description. “Resting point” is a better fit.
The time I end up spending on a new piece is mostly a matter of how much time I have. Sometimes a piece is finished in a day and sometimes I work away at it for weeks or months. But when I’m in the flow, time feels limitless. The process of creating, changing, adding colors and textures, playing is endlessly fascinating to me.
