Over time, my artwork started to gain more and more complex elements. I experimented, explored and expanded my thinking and my methods. Possibilities and potentialities presented themselves. The more options I could see, the more I questioned. The results brought to light things that I may not have seen otherwise. I started to draw parallels to both my life and my art making. Ultimately, my goal became to integrate much of my life to that of making art. Obtaining results was challenging, yet interesting.
