My desire to have more than polite conversations juxtaposed with my fear of saying too much or not enough is a starting point for making my art. I embrace the unknown and challenge it while trying to hide my doubts and fears. The fear of failing, the fear of misunderstanding, and the fear of understanding everything all too well factor into my work. When there is that one person who really understands what it is that I am trying to say it makes the bumps on the way there bearable. From this interaction I feel full, or at least a little less empty.
