When I read a play I am reminded of sights that I have seen, thoughts that I have had, feelings felt. I respond personally. I enter into the life of the play; I walk around and open my eyes, smelling and tasting it, submitting myself to all its evocations. My work is to transform these responses along with the materials of period and style research, text analysis and formal experiments into a locale and a mood, into a sense of place and a sense of occasion.

What I am looking for is an image and an idea. I sift for motifs inherent in the language, literary themes, symbols, references, allusions. I examine the possibilities of the visual ingredients of line, shape, color and contrast, balance and proportion, space and time. Elements merge. Forms appear. Time passes. I notice connections. Design begins.
