Greetings! For those of you who have
been following my work for the past few 
years, you will see how, in 2018, I have
started moving further and further away
from fussy, detailed illustration with each
new piece.  I still find inspiration in the
empirical (and suspect I always will), but
by this time next year will I have gone to 
complete abstraction? Only time will tell!
