artist statement

For as long as I can remember I have been engaged in art making. Currently my studio practice is primarily printmaking including relief, collograph, and monotype prints. My work has been inspired by music, nature and human narratives.

Recently I have discovered the joy of printing on fabrics. I love this process and the connection to textile art traditions. Printing on textiles has influenced the work I do on paper and the work I do on paper influences my prints on fabric. Currently I feel that I am developing a vocabulary in order to create conversations between the two and that is exciting.
