I want my viewers to feel unburdened when they look at my work. Perhaps they will remember what it was like to be a child on a summer day with nothing to do and nowhere to be, or whatever it is that soothes and slows their brains.
Puzzles and art have this soothing and slowing effect in common. Modern life is a constant blitz of noise. I hope my art quiets the noise, and brings a moment of joy.

I found puzzling to bring on a very meditative experience and I liked it. The was challenging and exciting, because endorphins are created when a piece finds its place. The artwork is beautiful.
