“I take a lot of photos and don't always know which will end up as reference material. I don't always feel the initial inspiration, but might circle back years later. In general, I am looking for a composition that is interesting—forcing me to look around in all directions—but I also need subject matter that is embedded with information. I want a little guidance from the image I am working from, and then the freedom to take liberties with color, line, and space. I like a little boundaries, but not too many rules.”
