Tomorrow I’m headed to Brussels, one of my favorite international “Art Cities” to meet up with two other artist friends for some gallery hopping and a few days of wandering around on cobblestone streets.
In the meantime, I’m spending a few days in the studio drawing patterns, symbols, and a language of my own making, on a collection of fabric I’ve had hidden away for nearly 6 years.

- Sometimes art refuses to be put on a schedule.
- Dreams and ideas need time to grow, expand, fold themselves in half, and become new things.
- Artworks manifest at their own pace. They reveal themselves in their own time.
