This freehand mandala was produced specifically for the Art for AIDS auction.
As with most of my work, it began with random—almost accidental strokes on paper.
This Dada-like approach is an essential part of my process, keeping me from working too formally or stiffly, and making the pieces less about me “the artist”.
To that end, my mandalas and other works have portions that are intentionally off centered and unbalanced. In this way, the compositions create harmony with a pinch of chaos, helping to bring the pieces to life.
My typical tools are fine art markers, high quality paper, and good lighting. A self-taught artist, in addition to drawing, I also enjoy painting with ink, creating assemblages, sculpture, and etching in stone, glass, and several other media.
