Structure and Spontaneity


I'm always fascinated by patterns and because I like organization I look for the structure underlying the pattern—whether it's in what I'm seeing in nature or in the music I'm listening to. On the other hand, I absolutely love improvisation! That's what I'm trying to express in my work—creating a structure that gives way to expressive and spontaneous improvisation.


I've been busy working out these creative challenges and have a bunch of new pieces that I've just put up onto my OOAK (One of a Kind) page. I'm excited about this direction and have so many ideas for how and where to steer this work.
