Growing up in the Catskill Mountains and on Cape Cod, I was an outside child. We walked miles up through cow pastures, made rooms in the woods, and castles and drawings in the sand in the summer. The layers, the patterns and colors of my natural surroundings are the source for my art. My reverence for nature and the environment are embedded in the images in my prints.
I think I love printmaking because it allows me to actually feel the relief of images being transferred to paper. I've adapted the alchemical processes of printmaking so that inks are transformed into richly layered colors and abstracted shapes that echo the world that surrounds me. The broader landscape often frames my inner landscapes. Chance, spontaneity and the joy of making are part of the excitement of wonderful unexpected results.
