When I'm working, I feel like I've entered another dimension. Using many different techniques each piece has its own unique history. Time disappears, hours or seconds pass, I'm lost in another world. Synesthesia, beautifully complex dreams plus an active imagination contribute to the process.
When the spell has passed, I perceive what I've done and never remember how I did it. Upon completion of a work, it almost always feels like the dimension I had entered kicks me out with a punch in the stomach. This beautiful struggle is my circadian rhythm.
