Artist statement:

When I talk about my work I think about the visible and the invisible. It is a balance between the present and a passing dream. It seems I travel between differing mediums and realms to end up in a neutral place, a kind of middle earth, a distance even from myself.

Unlike a realistic landscape or object, I allow ink, paint, charcoal, wax to cover the surface of the delicate paper. I accept the mystery of the unexpected. I concede to an attachment of primal life forms, circular forms, as organic elements. Compositions from the beach, the river, the forest take shape in the studio.

As printmaking encourages a changing image, it compels a spontaneous and intimate encounter to work within that space that probes between the ephemeral and the perpetual.
