"Oh, this is how it works. Now I understand it. I always wondered how it worked."
When I was eight or nine, I showed my Mother a drawing I had made of a horse as viewed from behind. The horse was looking back in such a way that its head was next to its hind quarters.
A perfectly natural position for a horse, but when interpreted on paper the juxtaposition is both unique and humorous.
My mother's response made me understand that my visual interpretation could have a profound effect on how others see or understand things. This revelation has had a lasting effect on me. Ever since, I am motivated to impart information and expression beyond mere illustration.
My Mother's response of understanding is the paradigm for my work: every piece explores a principle, or something that appeals to basic modes of understanding.
The ability to enable people to see things differently comes with a sense of empowerment and inherent responsibility. I strive to hold true to this responsibility in all my work.
