statement

I am interested in a sense of place as well as social interactions between objects and the space they inhabit.  Architectural elements are the vocabulary and working with these I create a dialog among shapes,structure and balance.

The printmaking process I have developed involves building with shapes cut from paper and utilizing these shapes as separate etching plates. These are often printed in layers with additional inks rolled on top.  Printmaking and its unique mark making are integral to creating a history in my work.
