"I compose relationships, striving for visual stillness and harmony that trascend the folies of fashion and trend. All objects, regardless of size or purpose, are compositions of form and space, and the manner in which these elements are balanced determines their visual harmony or dissonance. The more harmonious the composition, the more inherently beautiful and timeless is the object."
