Before the act of making art comes feeling.

The stronger my emotion, the more I make. I probe the vague and irrational through my making, those things undeniable yet difficult to express. 

I understand the artist as an explorer propelled by their inner world in search of affinity. Feelings are personal, fugitive. They move me to action, sometimes to my cost, sometimes to my gain. Without feeling I would be lost as would my art.
