The author offers an insight into the imagery of his work and on his journey as a felt artist. He considers his journey to be like a spiral, where in he meets over and over again the same questions about his intent, what the textile means to him and whether the image is appropriate to the medium. The author also shares that his effort to find answers about image and material is a quest to find clarity and honesty in his work. He believes that felts were not about technical prowess, but the processes that bought a felt work into being.
