Once I create a painting or drawing I want to pull it apart, remake, remold and turn it inside out, until I find every angle and every layer of its being.  If something works it works over and over again in many different incarnations…..  This is where my love of working digitally with images comes from.  To work again and again to make a piece speak with many different tongues….  I use the computer exactly like I draw and paint, adding and removing, without method or direction, to see what evolves….

I would love to see these images used on fabric, album covers etc…. I have loads of them!…. Something for future investigation I think….
