I'VE KEPT MY CREATIVE life secret for the most part, hidden, like crystals in a geode. So it isn't surprising that I would make some geodes of my own. Geodes are a lot like us, after all. On the outside, they're kind of pedestrian, like rocks; but on the inside —whoah! Inside you'll find a uniquely beautiful, multi-faceted universe. It's been percolating secretly for millennia, regardless of whether anyone will ever see it or not. So you have to wonder, why does this inside exist? What's providing its motivation? What force is guiding it and nudging it along? Is it the same force that pushes a flower up the stem? All I know is getting to what's inside geodes —and us— is hard work. You have to bust open that protective exterior. That's the work I've been doing with my art. Ideally to celebrate the inner worlds within all of us. You can hear a brief story about each of these works in the 'WATCH' tab.
