My work is a response to my surroundings — colors, textures, and the play of light. Spending more time in nature this past year has heightened my awareness of the connectedness of all things. Combining various printmaking techniques, I've been trying to express those connections and relationships between disparate objects.
My plates are my vocabulary. The ability to use repeatable images, building and layering marks to create a feeling of history and time elapsed. I'm constantly exploring different techniques and finding ways to incorporate them into my work.
Studying the uniqueness of things often leads me to the awareness of the universality of different elements and my place amongst them. Sometimes the study of the mundane leads me to the magical.
