When it comes to describing my creative process, I can only say that I start with an intention and perhaps a picture or a sketch. From there on, anything can happen. At times I find it so terribly frustrating, and I wonder how many other artisans find this to be true for them also. ...Sometimes, I get so far off course that I end up with a piece that is nothing like what I had conceived in the first place. ...Sometimes, there has been an issue with the materials or the design, but often it is simply that the design takes on a life of it's own and leads me on a totally divergent course.
