My current body of mixed media works employs various printmaking techniques (relief, intaglio, collagraph, stencil), combined with drawing and collage materials, including rice papers, transfers, tissue paper, vellum, etc.
Much of my work is based on ideas of survival and transformation, focusing on the simple yet complex nature of organisms and how species evolve and exist. I’m interested in exploring the interrelationships between humans and our natural environments. Issues of transition and mortality are central. I am drawn to the use of multiple images that printmaking offers. By making numerous small plates, I'm able to carry through with a continuity of imagery and concepts in my studio. The processes of ordering and arrangement, patterning, and surface- layering are integral to my work.
