Similar to most artists composers and writers my work gets swiftly delivered, quite nearly complete into my consciousness. I'm left to concern myself with quality as the style is apt to vary. I do what I want. I make the art I feel is mine to make once I'm given these visions. There is however a state of being which allows the surface consciousness to be available for these transmissions, and I would generalize them as very good.
